On August 1, 2012, Sen. Moran spoke on the Senate Floor about the ongoing drought and the uncertainty facing American farmers and ranchers. As Congress debates the future of ag policy, Sen. Moran believes it is critical that risk management tools are included for farmers and ranchers. Disaster programs for livestock along with crop insurance give producers the security they need to plan and invest for the future. A sound safety net is vital for drought recovery, continued conservation work, and for an affordable food supply for the people of our country.
