The U.S. Senate is working on passing a disaster aid bill to provide assistance for farmers hurt by storm damage, including those affected by Hurricane Michael last October. The U.S. House did pass a disaster bill last week, and now congressional leaders and the White House are working on a bipartisan bill that can get through the Senate. Last week Colquitt County Georgia farmer Bart Davis, who is also Chairman of the Georgia Cotton Commission (GCC), told a House subcommittee that U.S. producers are facing a “perfect storm” of problems.
GCC Executive Director Richey Seaton explains why Davis was in Washington D.C.
