Our message to Congress has been clear all year: We need a fair, sustainable Farm Bill, and we need it this year. They didn’t get the message yet.
Congress left town just as the current Farm Bill expired, and they didn’t bother to finish a new bill or extend the old one, leaving critical food and farm programs high and dry with no funding. So now, as we prepare for their post-election return to DC in just a few weeks, we’re letting Congress know once again that we need a 2012 Farm Bill — only this time, we’re not asking.
Will you join us? Over the next few weeks, we are joining a broad-based, national push for a 2012 Farm Bill. Our goal: 50,000 signatures. We hope your name will be among those counted.
