Rep. Van Hollen- Direct Payments: “Serve no useful purpose right now.”

Categories: Farm Bill

On Friday, House Budget Committee Ranking Member Chris Van Hollen noted that Direct Payments “serve no useful purpose right now,” while discussing sequester issues at a news conference with House Democratic Leaders.

He explained that a plan to avoid the sequester drafted by Senate Democrats, and a separate plan put together by House Democrats, both include the elimination of direct payments.
