House Ag Democrats committed to protecting IRA funds

Democrats on the U.S. House Ag Committee say they will not compromise their principles in a bipartisan farm bill.

During a call with reporters Tuesday, Ranking Member David Scott of Georgia says Democrats do not support using Inflation Reduction Act funding for other intended purposes.

“We will not compromise on our principles or shortchange on the promises made under the Inflation Reduction Act or the nutrition title of the 2018 Farm Bill,” he says.

Scott says they reject the idea of keeping the Thrifty Food Plan budget unchanged or using at least half of conservation IRA funds for the commodity safety net to increase reference prices.

When it comes to passing legislation out of committee, Congresswoman Shontel Brown of Ohio tells Brownfield, “I’ll just say that the time is now, and if they’re ready to work, then so are we.”

Brown says Democrats are ready to confront proposals that would redirect IRA money.

“We know that this is a tactic that they have used in the past as it relates to their proposed legislation,” she says.  “We are prepared to confront that if that is a measure that they would propose again.”

She says while reference prices need to be increased, it should not come at the expense of nutrition programs.

The Democratic principles include protecting efforts to reduce hunger, investing in sustainable agriculture, revitalizing rural America, improving equity, and supporting renewable and bioenergy.

    Brown says Democrats are ready to confront proposals that would redirect IRA money. (To where?)

    “We know that this is a tactic that they (define ‘they’)have used in the past as it relates to their proposed legislation,” she says. “We are prepared to confront that if that is a measure that they would propose again.”

    She says while reference prices need to be increased, it should not come at the expense of nutrition programs.
    The serpent truly speaks opposite. Evil will cull 401k-er’s.
