RURAL UPDATES! SPECIAL FARM BILL ACTION ALERT
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
December 10, 2001

Right now the Senate is poised to vote on a farm bill proposal that could
dictate farm policy for the next five years.  PLEASE CALL YOUR
SENATORS TODAY!  Tell them you want to improve the Senate Ag
committees' proposal by improving the two "C's" Conservation and
Competition.

And tell them to LIMIT SUBSIDES TO FACTORY FARMS!

Also, Senators Cochran and Roberts are trying to undermine Ag
Chairman Harkin's proposal via an amendment supported by the White
House.  This must be stopped.  For details on this and the items above
see www.familyfarmer.org ACT TODAY!!

Please call your two Senators today (toll free 1-800-648-3516) Ask them
to....

1.  Oppose the Cochran-Roberts Amendment, which will weaken
Conservation Programs provided in S.1731 

2.  Support the Wellstone Amendment to Limit Taxpayer Dollars to
Factory Farms 

3.  Support the Durbin Amendment to Discourage New Row Crop Acres 

4.  Support Amendments to Improve Competition in the Marketplace
(Wellstone and others)


Many thanks,

Scotty Johnson
