Critical farm bill stalled in house

Posted on August 2, 2012 |
By Andrea Suozzo



WASHINGTON, D.C. — The 2012 federal farm bill, which determines five years of agriculture and nutrition policy, could be postponed for another year, according to U.S. House of Representatives majority leaders.

That prospect left Rep. Peter Welch, D-Vt., concerned by the prospect of a one-year extension of current agricultural policies and its potential effects on Vermont farmers.

“This would be very harmful to Vermont dairy farmers and others around the county,” said Welch on Tuesday.

SALISBURY — As a self-employed paint contractor, Salisbury resident Tim Ryan has navigated through some choppy financial waters during the past four years while the economy has faltered.

And through it all, Ryan believes his fortunes — and those of other small business owners — could have been improved if state government had done more to relieve the tax burden and reduce regulations on struggling enterprises.

Now Ryan, 45, has decided he will try to change state economic development policy from within.
