Kansas Agriculture Secretary Adrian Polansky wrote a commentary in Sunday’s Eagle criticizing the Bush administration’s proposal to cut agriculture spending by $3 billion in the coming year. “The president’s timing couldn’t be worse,” he wrote. “Kansas farmers are facing high fuel prices, higher interest rates, high fertilizer costs and, as in much of the Great Plains, a worsening drought. Now is not the time to scale back this important safety net. It will have a negative impact on our farmers, as well as our smaller rural communities that depend on their patronage.”
