Farm Bill, Policy Issues

Daniel Looker reported yesterday at Agriculture Online that, “Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA), a member of the Senate Agriculture Committee, told reporters Tuesday that leaders of the committee remain optimistic about a new farm bill being passed in the current lame-duck session of Congress, which will resume after this week’s Thanksgiving break.

“Grassley said that he talked to the committee’s chairwoman, Senator Debbie Stabenow (D-MI), about the farm bill recently on the floor of the Senate.

“‘She said she thinks we have a good chance of getting it passed,’ Grassley said.”
