Grassley not backing down on payment limits

Earlier this week, House Ag Committee ranking member Collin Peterson stated that the big hang-up in the farm bill negotiations right now is Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley’s payment limits provision.

Grassley recognizes it’s a big issue, but he isn’t backing down.  He argues it shouldn’t even be up for discussion because it was passed by both houses.

Here’s an excerpt from Grassley’s Tuesday conference call with ag reporters.
