Stabenow Still Fighting for Farm Bill

August 9, 2012

Sen. Debbie Stabenow is thankful that President Barack Obama convened the White House Rural Council in response to the drought that is covering more than 60 percent of the lower 48 States, but she's hoping for more.

The worst drought in more than 50 years has the White House offering a new round of disaster relief, but the administration can only do so much, Stabenow says.

"The real burden rests on Congress to pass a full five-year Farm Bill that would provide better disaster relief and provide long-term certainty," Stabenow, a Democrat from Michigan, said in a press release.

"It's deeply troubling that House leaders would leave farmers, ranchers and small businesses in the lurch at a time when our agriculture economy is vulnerable and facing historic hardship."
