U.S. Senators Russ Feingold and Herb Kohl have written a letter to President Bush urging him to follow through on his commitment to Wisconsin farmers to extend the Milk Income Loss Contract (MILC) program.

The MILC program expired Sept. 30 and neither the House, nor Senate ag spending bills contain funding to extend the program. During a 2004 campaign stop in Wisconsin President Bush told supporters there he supported extending the MILC program.
