NPR's Michele Norris talks with Rusty Thompson, a fifth-generation tobacco grower from Versailles, Ky., about the tobacco buyout included in the corporate tax bill. Thompson is still not sure whether he will get out of growing tobacco. He is going to a meeting of his growing cooperative tomorrow in Lexington where they will be talking about this. Rusty sits on the board of the Burley Tobacco Growers Cooperative Association.
