Johnson: Cap Farm Payments To Mega-Farms



Bookmark and Share

U.S. Sens. Ben Nelson of Nebraska and Tim Johnson of South Dakota are part of a bipartisan group of senators who will seek to cap federal farm payments to large farming operations.
 
The group plans to introduce a measure to limit payments to so-called mega-farms.
 
Nelson says that with farm income booming and the national deficit soaring, "the time has come to rein in these payments."
 
Nelson and Johnson are Democrats. They're sponsoring the proposal with Democratic Sens. Tom Harkin, of Iowa; Sherrod Brown, of Ohio; and Kirsten Gillibrand of New York; and Republican Sens. Chuck Grassley, of Iowa, and Mike Enzi, of Wyoming,
 
Nelson says he hopes the measure will be included in the federal farm bill being crafted by Congress.
