AGRIBUSINESS: Congress Recess Leaves Three Days To Finish Farm Bill

Posted on: 3:31 am, January 20, 2014, by , updated on: 03:30am, January 20, 2014

Congress is set for recess and will not be back until Jan. 27.  That means there will be only three days left to complete a Farm Bill before February.

A possible breakthrough last week may lead to finishing negotiations on dairy but food stamps and the King amendment, which restricts the state’s ability to regulate production standards are both areas of contention.

If the Farm Bill is not finished this month, Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley said they might have to put forward a temporary extension.  Congress resumes session for three days from Jan. 17 through Jan. 29.

  • Republican farmers just aren’t going to give up their welfare without a nasty little girl fight apparently.

  • As opposed to the democratic farmers? and since you’re always pulling some ones hair, apparently you know all about little girl fights

  • Perhaps, Mr. Troll, you can tell us which of these are republicans and which are democrats?
