President's Statement on Agriculture Appropriations Bill
The agriculture appropriations bill meets important priorities and holds spending below last year's level. This legislation is an important step forward in our efforts to rein in spending while maintaining our commitment to America's farmers and consumers. By pursuing pro-growth economic policies and restraining spending, we can stay on track to meet my goal of cutting the deficit in half by 2009.
