Please take 30 seconds today against the "Secret Farm Bill". Farmers and eaters need YOU now!
Here's a simple script, heck, have fun with it!
Hi, my name is _______ I'm calling to put an end to corporate greed and say "No" to the secretive process by which the farm bill budget negotiations are taking place. Rushing this vital piece of legislation behind closed doors is unfair and undemocratic.
Please tell Congressman / Senator _____ that I care about America's family farmers and support the right to an open and transparent Food and Farm Bill that has no cuts to vital conservation or nutrition programs. Please co-sponsor the Local Farms, Food, and Jobs Act (S. 1773, H.R. 3286) instead of rushing through the Secret Farm Bill.
