May 17, 2018 by AFP

May 17, 2018

Dear Representatives:

On behalf of more than 3.2 million activists in all 50 states, AFP will score the following amendments to the Farm Bill in our congressional ratings.

I strongly urge you to vote YES on the following amendments (or substantially similar ones) to H.R. 2, the Agriculture and Nutrition Act of 2018.

No. 16 (Rep. Biggs): To repeal bioenergy subsidy programs that have no place in any farm bill.
No. 32 (Rep. Foxx): To lift certain restrictions on the domestic production and sale of refined sugar, reduce taxpayer liability on USDA loan forfeitures, and reform the burdensome restrictions on imports thereby reducing government micromanagement of the market.
No. 3 (Rep. McClintock). To phase out farm subsidies over time, reducing government intervention in the agriculture economy and saving the taxpayer billions of dollars.
I strongly urge you to vote YES on these amendments (or substantially similar ones) to H.R. 2. Americans for Prosperity will include these votes in our congressional scorecard.

Please also be advised that, in its current form, AFP is opposed to H.R. 2. We intend to score H.R. 2 for our congressional scorecard and anticipate urging members to vote NO when it is considered.

Visit our scorecard online at: AFPscorecard.org.

Sincerely,

Brent Gardner

Chief Government Affairs Officer

Americans for Prosperity
