Rep. Noem Offers Amendment to Improve Biomass Crop Assistance Program
July 12, 2012
Rep. Noem offered an amendment during Farm Bill debate in the House Agriculture Committee on the Biomass Crop Assistance Program (BCAP). The amendment gives USDA the necessary flexibility to protect BCAP funding that has already been invested and to ensure that existing projects are given proper support. It does this by making ongoing or existing projects a factor to be considered by the Secretary.
