House Passes Cotton Support Legislation

The Georgia Cotton Commission commends the United States House of Representatives for their passage of HR 4667 yesterday.  We are especially grateful for the support of Georgia Members of Congress: Buddy Carter, Sanford Bishop, Drew Ferguson, Karen Handel, Austin Scott, Doug Collins, Rick Allen, and David Scott.

This legislation places cottonseed under Title 1 of the Farm Bill, and will allow assistance for Georgia cotton growers who are struggling with depressed markets.

The Commission is hopeful that the United States Senate will take up this legislation when they return to Washington in 2018.
