Podcast: Opposing the cap and trade bill was right decision

In this podcast, Rick Gruber, a farmer from Benedict and member of the Nebraska Corn Growers Association, discusses the group's opposition to cap and trade legislation passed by the House of Representatives last year. He noted that the National Corn Growers Association board also voted to oppose the measure.

NCGA's decision came after an analysis was completed by Informa Economics showing that over the long haul the legislation would be significantly detrimental to U.S. corn farmers.

That was consistent with the position the Nebraska Corn Growers took following votes at its annual meeting in December. At the meeting, Nebraska farmers voted to not support cap and trade legislation and to take resolutions to the national meeting in March saying so.
