CARES-2 Legislation: Contact your lawmakers now! Tell them to Support Agriculture.
The COVID-19 pandemic has dealt an enormous blow to farmers and ranchers across the country. In nearly every sector – dairy, livestock, produce, horticulture – producers have seen their markets shrink overnight or even disappear, while supply chains have been stretched to the limit in response to this emergency. The federal response to COVID-19 will require ongoing action to adequately address the needs of millions of Americans in crisis. Farmers and ranchers must not be left out.
Right now, Congress is working on the second “Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act,” also known as the CARES-2 ACT. This emergency legislation is needed to help America’s farmers and ranchers weather the storm during this difficult time.
Farm Bureau is committed to doing all we can to preserve the economic health of the agricultural sector as the nation fights this pandemic.
This bill has the potential to provide a lifeline to farm families in their time of need, but our leaders need to hear from you The drop in commodity prices and other serious disruptions to the food chain are impacting life on the farm and ranch.
Our neighbors near and far are counting on America’s farmers and ranchers as the front line in continuing to provide the food, fuel and fiber that keep the world fed and the economy moving. Weathering this storm will take a united team effort from all of us.
