This is Governor John Carlin testimony before the U.S. House Agriculture Committee about the farm financial crisis impacting the Midwest and Upper Great Plains. He points out that farmers were hurt by declining crop and livestock prices, rising fuel prices, high interest rates, and the unavailability of credit. Carlin proposes that the federal government offer farmers advances on commodity loans for the 1980 crop year to help alleviate the immediate crisis.
