CMC Continues To Push For Retention of Key Census Bureau Report In Meeting With USDA

CMC joined with our ag colleagues to continue our push for the retention of key Census Bureau reports in an hour-long meeting yesterday with USDA.  The reports we seek to preserve report on soybean meal and oil production, wheat flour, and cotton consumption.  While USDA is keen to have the reports continue, budget pressures at the Census Bureau make it very difficult.  Some of these reports date back 100 years, so any lapse in the data would be harmful.  We plan to continue working with our colleagues at the Census Bureau, USDA, and on the Hill.
