ABSTRACT
U.S. Senator Charles Grandstand, held a hearing on a GAO report of the United States Department of Agriculture's (USDA) administering of farm program payment regulations. The report says USDA doesn't have measurable standards to insure recipients of farm program payments are actively engaged in farming. And that's a standard that needs to be measured. The GAO said that for one-half the farming operations it reviews for 2001. FSA field offices did not use the available tools to determine whether individuals or entities are actively engaged in farming and eligible to receive farm program payments.
