Roberts introduces ag mediation bill

U.S. Senator Pat Roberts introduced legislation to continue critical agriculture mediation programs.

"The mediation programs at the Department of Agriculture go a long way in helping our farmers and ranchers seek confidential advice and counsel to address loan problems and disputes before they grow to be too much for the producer too handle," Senator Roberts said.

The legislation will continue to authorize the Certified State Agriculture Mediation Program for five years.

Mediation provides a neutral, confidential forum to discuss complex issues and build strong working relationships with producers, their lenders and government agencies. The programs address issues in a confidential and non-adversarial setting outside the traditional legal process of foreclosure, bankruptcy, appeals and litigation. 35 states now participate in the program.
