WASHINGTON (May 20, 2013) -– R Street Institute Senior Fellow Andrew Moylan will join representatives of the Cato Institute, Environmental Working Group and Taxpayers for Common Sense for a discussion hosted by Cato on ways to reduce the economic and environmental costs of the 2013 Farm Bill.

Differing versions of the nearly $1 trillion legislation recently passed both the House and Senate agriculture committees. While both propose to eliminate direct payments to farmers, each would spend most of that savings on a host of wasteful new insurance and subsidy programs.

WHAT: “The 2013 Farm Bill: Reducing the Economic and Environmental Costs”

WHEN: May 30, 2013, 12 noon

WHERE: B-340 Rayburn House Office Building, Washington, D.C.

Chris Edwards, Cato Institute

Scott Faber, Environmental Working Group

Josh Sewell, Taxpayers for Common Sense
