Iowa Ag Review


Late last year, U.S. House and Senate conferees reached agreement on language for the Agricultural Reconciliation Act of 1995 (ARA-95). President Clinton later vetoed this as part of his refusal to approve the Balanced Budget Act. The agricultural package, because of its similarities to the 1995 Roberts-Emerson proposal, was called "Freedom to Farm" by some. FAPRI evaluated the ARA-95 proposal soon after the Congressional compromise was reached.
