Obama, Romney provide policy answers to Farm Bureau

The American Farm Bureau Federation today released questionnaires that President Barack Obama and Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney filled out with their views on farm policy.

Obama emphasized his support for the farm safety net and the Renewable Fuel Standard, while Romney also committed himself to the RFS, but emphasized that he would reduce environmental regulation and have a “pro-growth” tax strategy, Farm Bureau noted in a news release.
