Farm Subsidy Rules Called Too Vague: Money Going to Undeserving, GAO Says

Date: July 1, 2004
Author: Brian Faler
QUOTE: 'We know that it's millions of dollars,' said Lawrence J. Dyckman, who co-wrote the report. 'But we don't know if we're talking about hundreds of millions or half a billion. We really don't know and, unfortunately, the USDA doesn't know either because they haven't paid enough attention to this.'

ABSTRACT: A report from the federal General Accounting Office revealed massive oversight and fiscal mismanagement by the United States Department of Agriculture, which dispensed millions of dollars of farm subsidies to corporations that don't qualify for the aid.
