AGRIBUSINESS: Commodity Titles Of House And Senate Farm Bills Get A Closer Look
The Food and Agricultural Policy Research Institute of Missouri released an in-depth look at how the commodity titles of the House and Senate versions of the farm bill compare.
According to the analysis of the commodity provisions, the savings gap between the two versions is bigger than a Congressional Budget Office analysis showed. FAPRI found the Senate bill saved $5.5-billion more than the House did in their version.
Looking at the possible consequences of provisions in the two bills, the FAPRI summary noted both bills have a lot in common and therefore would have similar consequences in many respects.
