FOOD BUSINESS: Bipartisan support for Fair Sugar Policy Act of 2019

A new bipartisan effort is underway to reform the bloated federal sugar subsidy program, a program that hasn’t changed in 80 years!

Last year, Big Sugar managed to kill an amendment to the Federal Farm Bill which would have reformed their corporate welfare scheme.

It was hard to watch, but only three Florida politicians were willing to stand up to sugar and vote their conscience: then-Congressman Ron DeSantis, Congressman Brian Mast, and Congressman Francis Rooney all voted in favor of the amendment, but that wasn’t enough to overcome sugar’s influence in Congress.

Now, we’ve got another chance to reform the program. Big Sugar will hate it. But this is where real change begins.

Call your representatives and tell them you support Fair Sugar Policy.
