Congressional Budget Office estimates Dairy Freedom Act costs less than Dairy Security Act

June 13, 2013 | 0 comments

Last month, the Senate and House Ag Committees passed their versions of the farm bill.

The Dairy Security Act (DSA) is included in both committee versions of the farm bill, and floor debate is expected to begin soon.

The Dairy Business Association (DBA) supports the bi-partisan compromise bill, the Dairy Freedom Act (DFA), offered by Representative's Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) and David Scott (D-GA) as an amendment to the DSA.

The DFA mirrors all of the provisions of the DSA except the DFA does not include a supply management program provision called the Dairy Market Stabilization Program (DMSP).

Recently, estimates were released by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) that compared the costs of the two dairy safety-net programs - the DSA and the DFA to the DSA. According to the CBO, the DFA would cost $15 million less than the DSA now included in the farm bill.

"The CBO estimates clearly demonstrate the DFA does not cost the government more money than the DSA," said DBA Executive Director Ms. Laurie Fischer.

"The DSA would not only cost more, but it would also add more government intrusion into an already highly regulated dairy industry, and it would impose new and costly regulations on the nation's dairy processors. The DBA will continue to fight for adoption of the DFA which would provide an effective safety net option for dairy farmers, without government interference in their businesses or in milk markets," she said.

At a recent WisPolitics luncheon, Congressman Paul Ryan (R-Janesville) indicated when the farm bill hits the House floor, there's likely to be a strong move to kill supply management. Reports have indicated the House will take up the House farm bill the week of June 17.
