Senate Passes Farm Bill
The Senate has passed its version of the Farm Bill today, with the comprehensive five-year legislation totaling $955 billion. The bill will eliminate direct payments made to growers, but retain several other programs including grant programs for specialty crops. It was passed on a bipartisan 66-27 vote.
The House is expected to debate their version of their Farm Bill later this summer, and at that time, we will post a more comprehensize round-up of the programs included and funded in the Farm Bill. In the meantime, here's a news story on the vote, and a comparison of both bills.
