North Dakotans have what may be their final chance to sound off on the 2007 Farm Bill before the U.S. Senate comes back into session. Senator Kent Conrad, a member of the Senate Agriculture Committee, is hosting a forum Wednesday, along with the National Farmers Union. Union president Tom Buis says limiting payments to mega-farms and permanent disaster assistance will be hot topics.

"Adverse weather is going to occur. We should plan for it by putting a good program in place that gives producers certainty."

Buis says often times in Washington, things that look good on paper aren’t good for family farmers. He says, when it comes to farm policy, it’s vital that Congress hears from people in rural states like North Dakota.

"If you are going to make life better for rural America, you have to get the input from the people that actually make up rural America."

The Senate Agriculture Committee will draft its version of the Farm Bill. Once the final bill is signed into law, it will set the course for American agriculture for at least the next five years.

Senator Conrad's forum will be held Wednesday, August 29, at 10:00 a.m. at the Kevin and Yvonne Schmidt farm south of Mandan.
