House Ag Committee Chair Collin Peterson recently spoke about this issue:
As much as he might wish it would just go away, “something will probably
have to be done on payment limits in the 2007 farm bill,” House Agriculture
Committee Chair Collin Peterson says.
Peterson has let it be known that, unlike some Midwest representatives and senators, he doesn’t get too get exercised about the push to reduce payment limits for individual farmers.
“We had quite a discussion on this in our hearings the other day,” Peterson said
during a teleconference with reporters. “I told the Conservation Reserve Program
people the issue will probably have to be addressed. Stonewalling it will not be
a workable strategy.”
