WHEAT GROWERS SUPPORT PROPOSED FARM BILL, URGE QUICK ACTION BY CONGRESS
National Association of Wheat Growers (NAWG) reports:

A statement from the National Association of Wheat Growers (NAWG) President Bing Von Bergen, a wheat farmer and seedsman from Moccasin, Mont:

"I join my fellow wheat growers in support of the conference committee approved farm bill agreement that strengthens crop insurance and allows growers the necessary safety net to keep a secure, affordable and healthy food supply. In addition, this bill provides funding for important programs in conservation, research and trade that help keep America's wheat industry productive and competitive on a global scale."

"NAWG and the 22 states we represent appreciate the tireless work of our agriculture leadership to see this bill to the finish line especially the work of our four leaders on the House and Senate agriculture committees."

"We encourage speedy passage by both houses of Congress and look forward to the implementation of the new law."

House leaders are expected to vote Wednesday with the Senate following shortly after.
