AMERICAN SOYBEAN ASSN CONGRATULATES PRESIDENT OBAMA ON SECOND TERM, URGES BIPARTISAN COOPERATION
American Soybean Association (ASA) reports:

The American Soybean Association (ASA) congratulates President Barack Obama on his reelection as the 44th president of the United States. ASA President Steve Wellman, a soybean producer from Syracuse, Neb., issues the following statement on yesterday's poll results:

"The American Soybean Association congratulates President Obama on his reelection and looks forward to working with the president and his administration in the interest of America's soybean farmers. Over the past four years, ASA has worked with the Obama Administration and Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack to advance critical priorities for the men and women of the soybean industry, including work toward the passing a comprehensive Farm Bill in 2012, passage of trade agreements, and restoring budgetary responsibility in Washington and nationwide.

"ASA is committed to working with the Obama Administration and Congress to help avoid the fiscal cliff; pass a new comprehensive farm bill to provide certainty to farmers and ranchers; extend current estate tax rates; expand trade opportunities; ensure freedom to operate and avoid needless regulatory burdens; address our nation's energy needs through biodiesel and bio-based products; and advance new technologies, including biotechnology, both domestically and globally.

"With Democrats continuing to have a majority in the Senate and Republicans continuing to hold a majority in the House, the need for both parties and the President to work to find common ground on the pressing issues important to our country is critical. A hallmark of agricultural policy has always been its bipartisan nature. ASA urges the President as well as members of both the House and Senate return to Washington with a renewed sense of purpose next week, so we can all get back to work serving America's hard-working families.

"ASA looks forward to working with elected officials on the key issues important to our country and to soybean farmers."

ASA represents all U.S. soybean farmers on domestic and international issues of importance to the soybean industry. ASA's advocacy efforts are made possible through the voluntary membership in ASA by more than 21,000 farmers in 31 states where soybeans are grown.
