During yesterday’s C-SPAN “Newsmaker” interview, Sec. Vilsack was also asked about the WTO Brazil cotton case and the agreement reached between the U.S. and Brazil back in April: “Question- American taxpayers will be paying $147 million a year to Brazil because the Agriculture Department’s cotton subsidy program has been ruled illegal by the World Trade Organization (WTO). What are you going to do about that in the next Farm Bill?”
