Ford at UK to speak about crop ’5 future

\ crowded room listened yester—
day as LflS. Senator \Vendell Ford
joined students at the School of
Agriculture to discuss the Long-

Term liconomic Assistance for
Farmers Act.
Ford introduced this act in

Congress to protect farmers, their
families and communities frotn
repercussions of the tobacco settle-
tnent between the state attorneys
general and tobacco manufacturers.

Ford, who once raised tobacco
himself, said the tobacco issue is the
toughest question he’s had to face in
his entire political career.

“\Ve’re faced with a situation
that will have significant impact on
everyone in Kentucky — from the
tobacco farming families to the fac-
tory workers, especially in our
smaller communities,” Ford said.

“Tobacco is a culture for our
state, so it's not necessarily a pro~
gram that can be here one day and
gone the next. It is going to be diffi-

cult to undo.“

.\ major component ofthe act is
the $1.4 billion Farmer ()pportuni—

their families to pay for higher edit-

per year and would rise to $3,900 by

workers, would be eligible for the

“if you are a quota holder in
1996, or a spouse, defendant or
immediate family member ofone of
these individuals, you can be eligible
for higher education assistance,"
Ford said.

The grants would apply to four—
year institutions. community col—
leges and technical schools, he said.

“\Ve have proposed enough
funding to cover 25,000 students
throughout the tobacco growing
states," Ford said. “\Ve feel this is
the right thing to do for the farming
families that have looked forward to
having this money and educating
their children or themselves."

.\ tremendous amount of work
needs to be done before the act
would become a reality, Ford said,
but he wanted to share with sltie
dents the overview of the program.

(Ilay Sullivan, an agriculture edu—
cation junior, said he was very
pleased with the senator‘s visit. and
found yesterday's discussion inter
esting and felt it was \ery' good on
the senator's part.

“I was really impressed by his
visit," Sullivan said. “Senator Ford
showed enough interest to share the
act with us and recognize that we
are part ofthe tobacco industry."

(Ihrest'a Dahinann, a junior eco»
noinics major, agreed.

“it was a wonderful treat to have
Senator Ford here today." she said.

“'l‘obacco is a huge part of our
state and so many peoplt .ire worried
about the future. l le cleared tip se\ —

was a real honor to hear from him."

Loys Mather. a professor in agri-
cultural economics. said he felt the
