Lugar, Boehner Introduce
Legislation To Fulfill
Farm Bill Promises
U.S. Sen. Dick Lugar, chairman
of the Senate Agriculture, Nutri
tion and Forestry Committee,
and Rep. John Boehner (R-OH)
introduced legislation to in
crease farmers’ competitiveness
by opening foreign markets, pro
viding tax and regulatory relief,
and expanding risk manage
ment options for farmers.
“This bill is about improving
net farm income. It will provide
farmers the tools to increase
income and build on the existing
farm safety net. Farmers will get
tax relief from deductibility for
health insurance so they have
the same benefits as other work
ers capital gains and estate
tax relief and the ability to aver
age out income in high and low
years. The bill would also open
up foreign markets and reduce
regulatory burdens on farmers,”
Lugar said.
“Many of the provisions were
included in the tax bill that
passed Congress but was
vetoed by the President last
year. In fact, many of them were
voted on in the last week as part
of the estate tax and marriage
penalty tax bills,” Lugar said.
“These taxes cut into a farmer’s
bottom line. Lower taxes and in*
creased trade are essential to in
creasing farmers’ net income.”
