farm bureau pleased with new farm bill efforts
“From the beginning of this farm bill discussion, we have stated our desire for an adequate income safety net with a strong crop insurance program,” said Mike Spradling, president of the Oklahoma Farm Bureau. “Crop insurance is extremely important for us, especially when you consider our variable weather conditions. We applaud the Senate and House Ag Committees for their swift and responsive actions this week.”

Inhofe said the SPCC relief will benefit farmers not only in Oklahoma, but around the country, from onerous regulations.
