Farm Bill to Cut Deficit and FFA Reorganizing

  • According to the Congressional Budget Office score of the 2014 farm bill, the measure including sequester will yield a total of $23 billion in cuts to program spending.

    This meets the goal set by the agriculture committee in 2011. The cuts to farm programs total $18.4 billion. Conservation programs are cut by $6.1 billion and nutrition programs are cut by $eight billion.

    While that totals more than $23 billion, some of those savings were reinvested into priorities like energy, strengthening crop insurance, research and fruits and vegetable programs. So the bill reduces the deficit by $23 billion.

  • The executive management of the National Future Farmers of America (FFA) Organization and National FFA Foundation will be consolidated through a joint governance committee of the two boards, a common CEO and a common CFO.

    The move was approved unanimously by the FFA Board of Directors and the Foundation Board of Trustees. The plan includes implementation of an integrated management team to increase collaboration and communication across both boards.
