Farm Bill Update

Posted on: November 8th, 2013 by NADO Admin

On November 6, the four head farm bill conferees, Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI), Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS), Rep. Frank Lucas (R-OK), and Rep. Collin Peterson (D-MN), met to begin discussions on how to bridge together the differences between the House and Senate farm bills. The specifics of the meeting have not yet been released, but people involved in the conversation say it was productive. Sen. Stabenow has also stated publicly that the conference committee hopes to have a compromise farm bill drafted by Thanksgiving. NADO legislative staff will continue to monitor the ongoing conference committee negotiations. The current farm bill law (P.L. 110-246), extended earlier this year, expired on September 30.
