SG-W:/ farm subsidies



For a list of individuals receiving farm subsidies across the nation
(click on Michigan, then type in Washtenaw County to view local
recipients), go to
http://www.ewg.org/farm/home.php

This is on the website of the Environmental Working Group.  They are
campaigning to change the current formulas for subsidies, which they see
as favoring large (corporate) farms over the small family farms these
were supposed to help.  They are proposing that more money should flow
to conservation easements and other methods of preserving the small
family farm.

The website has a great deal more information about this.  You may know
that subsidies are under discussion in Congress.
