dear senator patty murray,

Posted: November 22 2011
Patty Murray is the co-chair of the super committee and she is my senator.
Dear Senator Patty Murray,
As your constituent, I urge you to support a fair and balanced approach to food and agricultural spending in the deficit reduction bill.
Farm conservation and environmental programs have already been cut deeply and should not be cut any further.
Reform is long overdue for farm commodity, insurance, and disaster programs. Please support supercommittee recommendations that reduce spending on these programs, maintain a smaller, more targeted farm safety net, and reinvest in job-creating rural economic development, local and regional food systems, and young and beginning farmers.
Thank you,
Washington Farmer
