Title A farm safety surcharge on food: An agricultural safety policy proposal
Bibliographic information 1994, Vol.1, No.4, p.65-75. 25 ref.
Abstract Development of a new federal agricultural safety programme is proposed with funding coming from a value added surcharge on the farm value of food. While costs to consumers would be negligible, the surcharge would generate sufficient funds to expand federal agricultural safety efforts. Key elements for any new federal agricultural safety programmes are discussed.
