About 100 Ohio farmers are in Washington today to talk to lawmakers and administration officials about the new farm bill and renewable fuels. Congress created a government subsidy program for farmers in the farm bill last spring, but growers have been struggling to get signed up, despite a looming deadline of April first. Keith Stimpert is the Ohio Farm Bureau’s chief lobbyist. He says another pressing issue for Ohio farmers is the need to encourage the use and production of renewable fuels and ethanol. The farmers will be in Washington through tomorrow.
