House Fails to Pass Energy & Water Appropriations Bill
USAgNet - 05/27/2016

The National Corn Growers Association expressed disappointment that the House of Representatives failed to pass the FY17 Energy and Water Appropriations bill and urged members to work collaboratively to find a way to pass this important legislation as quickly as possible.

The group was among 20 organizations that sent a letter to the House Appropriations Committee earlier this spring supporting the revitalization of our deteriorating inland waterways infrastructure, and our association remains resolute in its support of this key legislation.

NCGA Production and Stewardship Action Team Chair Brent Hostetler said the House bill is important for farmers who depend on the inland waterways system to export grain and to receive farm inputs like fertilizer for crop production. America's farmers sustainably produce food, feed and fuel for the nation, growing our economy with their growing crop.
