Farm Bill

Erik Wasson reported yesterday at The Hill Online that, “Lawmakers on the House and Senate Agriculture committees are trying to write a new five-year farm bill through the supercommittee process.

“The legislators are using the supercommittee to avoid what would be a more public, election-year debate in 2012, when the current farm bill expires and new legislation would be scheduled for writing, according to critics of the effort.”
