U.S. Senator Charles Schumer warns that milk prices in stores across New York could double if the Farm Bill isn't renewed. Schumer says the nation will start to revert to 1940s era agriculture policy if a new Farm Bill isn't passed soon. The National Milk Producers Federation says government purchases of dairy products under the outdated law could cause milk prices to rise above $6 per gallon. The Farm Bill is enacted every five to seven years and provides farm and food policy for America. The 2012 Farm Bill passed the Senate on June 21 by a bipartisan vote of 64 to 35, but it remains stalled in the House of Representatives. The 2008 Farm Bill expired on September 30th.
Congressman Bill Owens and Congressman Reid Ribble of Wisconsin led a bi-partisan group of colleagues in writing to U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk calling for Canadian tariffs against U.S. dairy and poultry products to be eliminated as part of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, which is a proposed trade deal. Virtually all U.S. dairy and poultry products were excluded from the U.S.-Canada portion of NAFTA. Despite Canada's restrictions on imported dairy products, it remains the United States' second largest export market, totaling $443 million in 2011. The letter also urges the Administration to reach an agreement that strengthens and reinforces the World Trade Organization's sanitary measures by including safety measures based on sound, objective science. Agricultural producers, processors and exporters have for years complained about non-tariff restrictions from other countries that are not science-based. Earlier this year, Congressman Owens applauded Canada's invitation to join the negotiations. Last year alone, Canada imported more than $280.9 billion in U.S. goods
