Washington, D.C. (May 22, 2013)—The National Council of Farmer Cooperatives (NCFC) today expressed its strong opposition to Senate Amendment 925 to the farm bill (S. 954) being debated on the Senate floor today. The amendment, offered by Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.), would change, and effectively dismantle, current federal policies with regards to sugar.
NCFC’s 16th Washington Conference will be held at the L'Enfant Plaza Hotel in Washington, D.C. from June 10 - 12, 2013.
NCFC joined with other farm groups to create the Agriculture Workforce Coalition (AWC), which represents the unified voice of agriculture as the sector seeks to ensure that farmers, ranchers and growers are able to access a skilled and stable workforce.
