USDA Policey Benefits Chicken Farmers

The U.S. Department of Agriculture is proposing rule changes to provide significant new protections for poultry growers and livestock producers. "Concerns about a lack of fairness and commonsense treatment for livestock and poultry producers have gone unaddressed far too long," Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said in a written statement. "This proposed rule will help ensure a level playing field for producers by providing additional protections against unfair practices and addressing new market conditions not covered by existing rules."

The proposed rules include regulations that provide poultry growers with new protections when producers require them to provide expensive capital upgrades. The rules include a provision to ensure that poultry growers have the opportunity to recoup at least 80 percent of the cost. Chicken houses may cost $300,000, but as things stand now poultry companies may terminate a grower's contract at any time, leaving the grower deep in debt without income.

Among other changes, the rules would also require that poultry growers receive a written notice of a company's intention to suspend the delivery of birds at least 90 days in advance and that companies follow a fair process for using arbitration to remedy disputes.

Foxx Introduces Surviving Spouse Home Loan Bill

Congresswoman Virginia Foxx has introduced bipartisan legislation that corrects a current injustice in the VA home loan system. Her bill, the Disabled Veterans’ Surviving Spouses Home Loans Act, provides access to VA home loans for surviving spouses of permanently disabled veterans whose deaths are not necessarily attributed to their service-related disability.

Under current law, most surviving spouses of veterans whose deaths were not service-connected, but who had permanent, service-connected disabilities, are eligible to receive monthly compensation payments from the VA. These same spouses could not, however qualify for a VA home loan. Foxx’s bill corrects this problem by making these spouses eligible for the loan.

Her bill has been endorsed by the Disabled American Veterans, America Legion, the MOAA and the VFW.

That's because, as the Wilkes Journal Patriot reports, the state general assembly is considering a temporary hold on the new law that would put a permanent halt fireworks displays. The new law that went into effect would stop individuals from setting off fireworks. It allows only properly trained operators with NC permits to set off the pyrotechnics. Legislators are considering legislation for this year only that would let adults who have worked six displays or more a 30 day permit.

Wilkes to Benefit from ARC Grant Recommendations

A set of 25 grant recommendations announced yesterday includes money for Wilkesboro's planned Cherry Creek water line replacement. Gov. Bev Perdue says the projects in Western North Carolina have been recommended to receive more than $5.7 million in funding from the Appalachian Regional Commission.

Two projects in Surry and Watauga counties leverage additional grants from the Golden Leaf Foundation to provide access to mobile technology in schools, including laptop computers for students and teachers in Watauga County.

The Wilkesboro project, which was recommended for a $300,000 grant, would replace the water line that serves one of the Tyson Food plants in Wilkesboro. The lack of fireflow, the amount of water a service line can supply to battle a fire, has proved to be a problem when a previous building caught fire and was lost due to ineffective stream from a nearby hydrant. This grant will build new water and sewer infrastructure. Total project cost is over a million dollars.

A regional program to assist growers of specialty crops will also benefit Wilkes. Applicant: North Carolina Rural Entrepreneurship through Action Learning has been recommended to receive $35,000 to start a region-wide entrepreneurial training and support network to create and expand sustainable agriculture based businesses in Western North Carolina. The project will include convening partners to discuss regional needs related to sustainable agriculture, holding sustainable agriculture expos, and training instructors to offer specialized entrepreneurial training.
