Sen. Ag. Comm. Markup- Day One

Categories: Ethanol /Farm Bill

The Senate Agriculture Committee began marking up their version of the 2007 Farm Bill yesterday, and according to the Committee’s webpage, work will continue this morning at 9:00 a.m. EDT in Room 328A of the Russell Senate Office Building- live coverage will be available here.

In his opening comments at yesterday’s markup hearing, Committee Chairman Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) stated that, “This is a bipartisan bill that, I believe, will enjoy broad support on the committee. It conforms to a strict budget allocation and pay-as-you-go budget rules, yet still addresses the diverse geographical and philosophical views on our Committee in a balanced way. I would like to thank Chairman Conrad of the Budget Committee and Chairman Baucus of the Finance Committee for their help in making this possible.”
