Item is a recording of Charles W. Stenholm's (Texas congressman) overview on agricultural policy from a congressional point-of-view and a portion of a seminar on tax savings tips for American cooperatives. Mr. Stenholm's presentation covered topics such as tax reform, trade deficits, the effect of overproduction, world debt and consumption patterns, the farm credit/support system, and the need for a market orientated agricultural policy (and thus the need to create a level playing field between different state and national governments). His presentation was followed by a brief question and answer session.
Mr. Stenholm's session is followed by a presentation by two unidentified persons on tax tips for cooperatives. Presentation is joined in progress and recording ends before the completion of the presentation. Issues discussed include deferred debt, issuing of non-qualifieds, and member option plans.
