The article reports that Eddie Smith, National Cotton Council (NCC) chairman, has been advised to include the disaster assistance bill in the second JOBs bill in the U.S. to aid farmers with waterlogged crops in 2009. Smith states that a five percent economic loss for at least one crop of economic significance on the farm will likely have to be certified by producers. Passage of an ad hoc disaster bill had been sought by the NCC, Delta Council, and other farm organizations in November 2009.
