Moran announces sign-up dates for disaster assistance Congressman Jerry Moran an- nounced that the U.S. Department of Agriculture has established sign-up dates for drought assistance. The sign-up for the Crop Disaster Program, which will reimburse farm- crs or ranchers for qualifying losses in either 2001 or 2002, will begin June 6, with payments made shortly thereaf- ter. "Kansas farmers can now go to their bankers and make some solid plans for the future," Moran said. "Although we would like to see the assistance come sooner, guidelines are now in place for this disaster assis- tance to be distributed". The Agricultural Assistance Act of 2003 will provide $3.1 billion in drought aid for U.S. farmers and ranch- ers. It =s esumated to bring over $200 million to Kansas farmers who have been struggling through multiple years of drought. The USDA has also announced they are issuing refunds to eligible Kansas producers who were penalized last year for haying or grazing acreage enrolled in the Conservation Reserve Program. This provision, supported by Moran, bvill provide reTuhds of $16A million to producers natkm-wide. Last year some producers were assessed a 25 percent reduction in their CRP rental payments for emergency haying and grazing on CRP lands. "The limited availability of grazing land, coupled with high feed costs, left Kansas producers with few options lor feeding livestock during this year's dry conditions," Moran said. "Now they can recoup this cost."
