A news release from the National Cotton Council last week stated that, “The National Cotton Council commends the House and Senate Agriculture Committees for their diligent efforts in crafting a farm policy recommendation that is being delivered to the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction. Although full details are not yet available, the current proposal includes a new crop insurance program for upland cotton. The program, know as the Stacked Income Protection Plan (STAX), is based on NCC recommendations.”


NCC Chairman Charles Parker stated that, “The Agriculture Committees have crafted a responsible set of farm programs that meets the target for deficit reduction and maintains vital safety nets for production agriculture.”
