Vilsack points to CCC as potential farm bill solution


Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack says funding continues to be a major holdup in farm bill negotiations.

“We’re still waiting for the House and Senate to put on the table what they are looking at, and I’ve continued to indicate a willingness to sit down with folks to be creative. The reality is they want to do a lot of good things, but they haven’t been able to figure out where the money comes from.”

Speaking to Brownfield during a visit to Clear Lake, Iowa Monday highlighting the Healthy Meals Incentive Program, he suggested the Commodity Credit Corporation is the solution.
