Farm Bill Update

The Senate passed the Farm Bill by a 64-35 vote. Now it goes to the House where Ag Committee Chairman Frank Lucas said discussions will start July 11. Lots of regional differences in the Senate bill, which will lead to some interesting debate on the House side. If the House Ag Committee can reach an agreement  soon, then they will most likely bring it  to the House floor before the August recess, which starts August 4th and runs for a month.
