The thread in which the original bill was debated and modified is here: http://uselectionatlas.org/FORUM/index.php?topic=29934.0

The final bill can be found here: http://uselectionatlas.org/AFEWIKI/index.php/Farm_Subsidies_Abolition_Act

Please read both before debating things any further; this is another issue in which we've moved beyond the way things are in the real world.

After having read through the debate and the bill, I can say that I am satisified with things as they are currently in Atlasia and will not be voting for this bill. Smiley

Aye on the amendment, but I'm still voting against this bill. Tongue

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

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