Congress will soon vote on a new farm bill—the federal measure with the greatest impact on the food we eat. Currently, your tax dollars go to highly profitable agribusinesses that don't need the help and to people who don't live anywhere near a farm. The government does very little to help farmers grow organic fruits and vegetables. Sign this petition and help Environmental Working Group change that.
To: Frank D. Lucas, Chairman of the House Committee on Agriculture, Debbie Stabenow, Chairwoman of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry
Instead of giving billions of dollars in subsidies to those who don't need them, I want my money put to better use.
I want my tax dollars to promote organic farming, support real working farm families, protect land and water and help feed children.
Please invest in smarter food and farm policies.
