A New Farm Bill by Christmas?
Washington--There's been some movement on the farm bill recently. Dale Moore, the American Farm Bureau Federation's executive director of public policy, talked about the outlook for passage this year and why it's important in Monday's Newsline audio report.
The farm bill has been "a three-year odyssey," according to Moore. But he thinks the long road to legislation may finally be getting close to the finish line. There's going to be some tough issues to sort out, but the great news is, the House and Senate Agriculture committees are now sitting down and sorting out the differences between the two bills.
