Grassley Gets Clarification on Farm Bill Spending Issues in Budget Committee Today

An update from Sen. Chuck Grassley (R., Iowa) today indicated that,”During work today in the Senate Budget Committee on a budget resolution for fiscal 2014, [Sen. Grassley] affirmed that his initiative to reform farm program payments will be part of the Agriculture Committee’s effort to achieve $23 billion in agricultural savings sought by the Budget Committee and that, contrary to what the Budget Committee Chairwoman’s proposed budget says, all farm-bill spending will be on the table for spending reductions, including nutrition programs.”
