Farm Bill Update

The Senate started Farm Bill hearings on February 15.  There was much discussion on crop insurance.  President Obama recently released his 2013 Budget Request and he proposes cuts to crop insurance programs.  The next hearing is scheduled for February 28.  The Senate will need to have a bill ready to go by June before campaigning starts in full swing.  The likelihood of that occurring, in my opinion, is pretty remote.
