I think we should gear farm subsidies to keeping production within a certain quota, so that overproduction isn't as rampant as it is (or may be, perhaps when a GM is appointed s/he can tell us Smiley) now; it's certainly responsible for a good deal of the obesity-related health problems in Atlasia.

Wink Read the original bill discussion again - Atlasian farm policy is not currently the same as American farm policy.

Well, I know that we've eliminated subsidies to all but smaller farmers, but we don't have any information about whether they're still overproducing Tongue

Well this is an improvement on the original Bill and for that I'll give the Senator credit; and, although, I think it could be improved further, I'll vote Aye

I also need to give more thought to the points raised by Senator WMS as well the possibility of a further amendment more along the lines of my previous comments

With the agribusinesses out of the subsidy picture, I rather doubt it Tongue

Unfortunately, I didn't have time Sad to introduce a more comprehensive amendment, which would have proposed phased annual cuts in subsidies from FY 2007 to FY 2010 (possibly even beyond) with a proportion of these cuts/savings being allocated to Hardship Funds to assist those farmers and farming communities worst affected by the withdrawal of subsidies. Postponing any cuts at all until 2010 sees no the Treasury make no tangible savings whatsoever in the meantime

Therefore, I abstain on this Bill
