National Grange calls for a new Farm Bill

From the National Grange press release:

“The National Grange, on Thursday, expressed severe disappointment with Congress’ failure to debate and ratify a new Food, Farm and Jobs bill, opting instead to extend provisions of the 2008 Farm Bill for another year. The extension of the 2008 Farm Bill, included as part of the American Taxpayer Relief Act passed by Congress on Tuesday, lacks input from agricultural leaders in Congress, fails to address the hardships experienced by rural constituents, and provides no alternative for several expired programs.”
