Farm Bill

Reuters writer Charles Abbott reported yesterday that, “The Senate Agriculture Committee will begin a series of hearings ahead of drafting a new U.S. farm law by examining ‘our most vital resource — our food supply,’ said chairman Blanche Lincoln on Tuesday.

“In a statement, Lincoln announced the decision to call hearings on the law due in 2012 and listed topics for four of them. The first, on June 30 is ‘Maintaining our domestic food supply through a strong U.S. farm policy.’”
