Lincoln, Pryor Call on Bush to Refrain from Budget Cuts Harmful to Rural America

JANUARY 9, 2007 - Posted at 3:36 p.m. CST

 

WASHINGTON - U.S. Senators Blanche Lincoln and Mark Pryor of Arkansas say they sent a letter to President Bush this week urging him to avoid proposing harmful budget cuts that would injure the nation's farmers and ranchers, rural communities, food nutrition policies that help school children and low-income families, resource conservation initiatives, and other important national priorities provided under the Farm Bill.

Joined by a bipartisan group of senators, Lincoln and Pryor urged the president to instead propose a "robust new investment in renewable fuels in keeping with his commitment to end America's addiction to foreign oil."
