This article focuses on a large part of the farm population, which opposes U.S. President George Bush's proposed budget cuts, which they are being dispelled by a letter from farm groups to the House and Senate budget committees. A total of 218 farm, rural, hunger-relief and agribusiness groups, a huge number even by Washington standards signed the letter asking the committees to preserve the current funding levels for Agriculture Department programs. The groups range from well-known farm and commodity organizations such as the American Farm Bureau Federation, the American Soybean Association, the National Com Growers Association and the National Cotton Council to groups like 9 to 5, the National Association of Working Women.
