The Nation

June 28, 1989

With only a murmur of dissent, the House passed a $1-billion extension of last year's drought relief legislation. The measure, which must pass the Senate and survive a veto threatened by the Bush Administration, passed with a voice vote at the urging of farm state lawmakers who said winter wheat farmers are facing another disastrous year. However, Agriculture Secretary Clayton K. Yeutter, in a letter to House Agriculture Committee Chairman E. (Kika) de la Garza (D-Tex.), said that further drought relief may not be necessary and would discourage growers from buying crop insurance.
