Support Ag Export Promotion in the Farm Bill
NGFA members:

As farm bill negotiations continue, contact your lawmakers to urge them to support the growth of essential agricultural export promotion programs at the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). 

Bipartisan bills introduced in the House and Senate would increase funding for the Market Access Program (MAP) and Foreign Market Development (FMD) program authorized in the farm bill. USDA export programs like MAP and FMD have added an annual average of $8.15 billion to the value of American agricultural exports. Despite their success, funding for these programs has not increased since the 2002 Farm Bill.

The Agriculture Export Promotion Act of 2023 (H.R. 648) is sponsored by Reps. Dan Newhouse, R-Wash.; Tracey Mann, R-Kan.; Brad Finstad, R-Minn.; Ashley Hinson, R-Iowa; Jimmy Panetta, D-Calif.; Kim Schrier, D-Wash.; Jim Costa, D-Calif.; and Chellie Pingree, D-Maine. 

The Expanding Agricultural Exports Act (S. 176) is sponsored by Sens. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa; Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa; Susan Collins, R-Maine; Angus King, I-Main; and Tina Smith, D-Minn.
