The article discusses issues related to the passage of disaster assistance legislation for the U.S. farmers. The legislation is the companion bill to legislation. It was introduced in the U.S. Senate by U.S. Senators Blanche Lincoln and Jim Talent and would give producers who experienced a 35 percent loss due to adverse weather in 2005, the option to receive a partial direct payment. The proposed disaster bill would be better than earlier legislation that gave farmers an additional Agricultural Marketing Transition Act or AMTA payment following disasters in the late 1990s.
