KFB President Mark Haney's Statement on the Most Recent COVID Relief LegislationPosted on Dec 22, 2020
"Last night Congress passed legislation to provide additional COVID-19 relief for Americans. Kentucky Farm Bureau is pleased to see Congress’ continued support for Kentucky farm families. This legislation provides more direct aid to farmers that have faced market disruptions and reinstates the Paycheck Protection Program which has helped many Farm Bureau members cover operational expenses over the course of the pandemic. It also invests more in rural broadband which is crucial as schools, churches, businesses, and health services are relying on virtual communication more than ever. Kentucky farm families are still farming during the pandemic and continue to provide food, fuel, and fiber for our fellow Americans. We appreciate the additional support this legislation would provide."
