A pair of Wisconsin farmers want to know why they can’t apply for farm loan forgiveness under President Biden’s stimulus package.
Calumet County farmer Adam Faust and Crawford County farmer Christopher Baird are part of a lawsuit that challenges the program based on race. Their suit says the Biden Administration’s loan forgiveness program applies only to non-white farmers. They are challenging that. Faust says the economic impact from the coronavirus didn’t hurt one race more than another as far as agriculture goes.
