Farm "Counter-Cyclical Assistance"

Description:

This report discusses the reauthorization of major farm income and commodity
price support programs that expire after crop year 2002. Many agricultural interests
expect that a new “counter-cyclical assistance” program will be an integral component
of future farm policy. The intent of counter-cyclical assistance is to provide more
government support when farm prices and/or incomes decline, and less support when
they improve.
