Alto congressman writes bill to help farmers

Congressman Ralph Abraham, M.D., R-Alto, has introduced legislation to help soybean farmers better access a program designed to offset losses caused by Chinese tariffs.

 The US Department of Agriculture announced the Market Facilitation Program earlier this year that offers payments to soybean farmers based on losses to their harvested acres incurred by Chinese tariffs.

 However, not all soybean farmers have access to this program. In Louisiana, for example, many soybean farmers have either harvested with nowhere to take their beans or been unable to harvest at all.
