The Senate Agriculture Committee's approval of a farm bill that would restore about $800 million in funding for energy programs is a "big win" for farmers, rural businesses and supporters of renewable energy, according to the Agriculture Energy Coalition.
"There is no question these initiatives will continue to pay off, through new jobs and businesses, increased private capital investment and reduced energy costs," the group said. The coalition and the National 25x'25 Alliance called on renewable-energy supporters to continue pressing Congress to support the energy initiatives under the farm bill.
