The Alliance remains committed to working with broader agriculture interests to urge lawmakers to pass the 2012 Farm Bill before the current law expires on September 30 this year.



TK: Whether the issue of fresh v. processed fruits and vegetables in the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program is a divisive issue for the alliance is cloaked by the release. At least some "members of the Alliance" are disappointed in what is called a significant policy change for the program. Frankly, some other members of the alliance will be less concerned with the "integrity of the program" than making sure dried, frozen or canned fruits are included in the final language.
