Farm Bill: Hearings

The House Agriculture Committee continues to review U.S. farm policy in advance of the 2012 Farm Bill at a field hearing this morning in North Carolina.

The Committee has been exploring issues regarding the next Farm Bill in a series of hearings that have taken place since late April.

Most recently, on Thursday, the House Agriculture Subcommittee on General Farm Commodities and Risk Management heard from a number of commodity organizations regarding perspectives on U.S. farm safety net programs, an unofficial transcript of this hearing is available here.

Recall that the Senate Agriculture Committee will also hold the first of four hearings regarding Farm Bill reauthorization on Wednesday in Washington, D.C.
