Farm Bill Conference Committee to Resume Work Next Week

Posted on: January 3rd, 2014 by NADO Admin

Congress is expected to resume Farm Bill negotiations when they return from the holidays next week. The lead negotiators, Chair Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI), Ranking Member Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS), Chair Rep. Frank Lucas (R-OK), and Ranking Member Rep. Collin Peterson (D-MN) all stated last month that they had reached overarching agreements on most of a final Farm Bill, which will be brought to the full Conference Committee. As of today the conference bill has not been released. The Conference Committee will likely have a three-day marathon session in the coming weeks to hash out final provisions before a full committee vote.
