Your phone calls and face-to-face meetings with your Senators and Representatives during the August recess have made a difference!
Your work is forcing more members of Congress to see the need for farm payment limitations instead of cuts to rural development, conservation and food and nutrition programs. Thank you for being a vital part of making real progress on these issues.
Hurricane Katrina devastated several gulf coast states. Because of the national focus to aid disaster victims, Congress has postponed budget reconciliation by at least a month.
We want to keep you in the loop on budget reconciliation so we can all keep making our voices heard. Keep in touch.
