Farm Bill of 2012 Faces Congress
The 2012 Farm Bill is in the works, sparking debate in Congress.
The chance of getting the 2012 Farm Bill approved before the current bill expires Sept. 30 depends on who you ask.
Senator Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich., Chairwoman of the U.S. Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry, is optimistic on passage of the Agriculture Reform, Food and Jobs Act of 2012 (the Farm Bill). “Many are working in good faith with each other to get us where we need to go,” she said Sunday in remarks to reporters. “If we get this bill passed in the Senate there will be enough momentum to get it done.”
