No Farm Bill in 2013

Washington--Farm bill negotiators conceded Tuesday that they will not finish their work before Congress goes home for the year, but insisted that they are close to a final deal and working toward floor action in early January. 

"We are very confident that we are going to have an agreement," Senate Agriculture Committee Chairwoman Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.) said. "We will be ready to vote in January." The next few days remain pivotal as lawmakers wait on final scores from the Congressional Budget Office related to the commodity title.
