WASHINGTON (June 6, 2013) -- National Corn Growers Association President Pam Johnson released the following statement in response to the Senate’s farm bill cloture vote:
“The National Corn Growers Association is pleased to see the cloture vote on the farm bill received 75 votes, well over the 60 votes necessary to move the legislation forward. However, there is still important work that needs to be done. We urge the Senate to quickly take action and vote to pass the legislation.”
NCGA was one of the one hundred twenty farm and conservation groups that sent a letter to all senators yesterday urging them to vote for cloture on the farm bill.
