Senate Begins Farm Bill Consideration
Wednesday, June 6th, 2012
The Senate is set to begin consideration of the 2012 Farm Bill today.
Sources tell the National Journal that if Senate passage of the bill occurs before the Independence Day recess, it would increase the odds that the House will act and Congress will pass a compromise farm bill before the November elections.
Meantime, in blog update posted on Friday, the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition said it expects the House Agriculture Committee to markup its version of the farm bill during the week of June 18th.
