Farm Bill Update

A bipartisan group of Senators has written the first draft of language that may be included in the Farm Bill. Senators Sherrod Brown (Ohio), Dick Durbin (Ill.), Richard Lugar (Ind.) and John Thune (S.D.) wrote "The Aggregate Risk and Revenue Management Act of 2011."

This bill would eliminate direct and counter-cyclical payments, as well as the Supplemental Revenue Assistance Payment (SURE) program. In its place would be the new consolidated "ARRM" program, which would overhaul the Average Crop Revenue Election (ACRE) program. ARRM would pay based on planted acres, not on a formula using base acres. This changes much of the previous discussion that focused on eliminating direct payments.

Of key note to the ADA is that this bill proposes to eliminate the restrictions on planting fruits and vegetables on program land, though the ARRM program would not pay for losses from ineligible crops.

ADA's Farm Bill Work Group is meeting and is expected to present its recommendations and priorities in the near future to ADA’s Legislative and Public Policy Committee.
