EWG Congratulates Sen. Grassley on Payment Limits Amendment
Congressional Quarterly reports that Senator Grassley (R-IA) won support on his amendment to reasonably limit wasteful farm payments.
"We offer our congratulations to Senator Grassley on his victory," said Ken Cook, EWG president.
"This decision shows that there is momentum behind the reform of outdated, wasteful taxpayer subsidies to agribusinesses. We are encouraged by this decision and optimistic that if Congress will have a clean vote on reforms, small family farms and taxpayers will come out the winners."
