Higher Food Costs

To The Editor:

As a part of his campaign for re-election Congressman Charlie Bass said a main priority of his is "Strengthening the NH economy and getting our country moving again."

Bass recently voted against H.R. 6233 the Agriculture Disaster Assistance Act legislation that assists the drought ravaged farmers across the midwest so that they can continue to produce crops and feed the world. The legislation passed by a vote of 223 to 197.

Bass stated that he voted against this bill because: "It disproportionally cuts important conservation programs." Conservation programs over farming droughts and likely higher food costs.

Is this an example of strengthening the New Hampshire economy?
