Statement of Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) on Senate Passage of the Farm Bill

Posted on December 14, 2007

“This bill does the right thing for Tennessee farmers by boosting disaster relief assistance, providing tax credits for biofuel production and extending tax incentives to preserve the great American outdoors. After suffering the double-whammy of a late freeze and a record-setting drought, our farmers need this bill.” The farm bill, or The Food and Security Act of 2007, H.R. 2419 passed the Senate by a 79 to 14 vote. ###
