Farmers Union Member Testifies to Congress on Farm Bill Energy Title
Press Release: National Farmers Union

WASHINGTON (Feb. 15, 2012) – Missouri Farmers Union member Steve Flick testified today in front of the Senate Committee on Agriculture on behalf of National Farmers Union (NFU). Flick, the board chairman of Show Me Energy Cooperative, discussed the importance of federal renewable energy programs such as the Biomass Crop Assistance Program (BCAP), the Rural Energy for America Program (REAP), and the Biorefinery Assistance Program to his cooperative and to rural development as a whole.

“Show Me Energy’s use of BCAP is a compelling example of how farm bill energy title programs are incentivizing the production of dedicated energy crops,” said Flick. “We need to be increasing those programs that will help revitalize rural America and help America become more energy secure. The United States is a country with unlimited potential to do great things. I believe that America’s farmers, ranchers and rural residents have a bright future ahead of them with the right incentives. Renewable energy is the future of rural America.”
