A Summary of House Congressional Bill H.R. 5588 a.k.a. The "Save the Family Farm Act"
Kaiser, Harry M.; Heslop, Edward H.
The objective of this report is to summarize the five titles of the SFFA. Some of the titles of this bill, if enacted, would represent a significant departure from existing programs and would have many implications at the farm as well as market levels for agricultural commodities. While these implications are very important, it is beyond the scope of this report to examine them. Rather, the paper focuses solely on describing the mechanics of the SFFA. The paper is organized into five main sections with each corresponding to one of the five titles of the SFFA.
