Adam Sharp, OFBF Vice President of Public Policy, discussing recent developments with the 2012 Farm Bill

The Senate Agriculture Committee passed their version of a farm bill yesterday afternoon. It contains twelve titles that would dramatically reform and reauthorize farm bill programs for five years.

Meanwhile, the House Ag Committee has begun a series of hearings and should release their version after the hearings. Once the House and Senate pass versions, there would then need to be a conference committee to create a final farm bill.

AFBF is pressing for completion; the longer its delayed, the more political pressure there will be to reduce the farm bill budget. You can request a copy of OFBFs analysis, or listen to OFBFs Adam Sharp offer insights into the bill and the process.
