CHECK'S IN THE MAIL

Ag Secretary Dan Glickman has announced USDA will soon send farmers an additional transition payment. During the month of September, 1.4 million eligible farmers and ranchers will automatically receive checks for amounts equal to their 1999 transition payments, in addition to their regularly scheduled 2000 AMTA payments.

The latest round of funds, at just under $5.5 billion, brings the three-year aid total to $21.7 billion. Though the AMTA structure may not be the fairest way to distribute aid, it is the most expedient, according to House Ag Committee Chair Larry Combest.

A release from his office says it "ensures financial assistance to the greatest number of producers quickly and efficiently, prior to the end of fiscal year 2000."
