Farm Bill Updates

While it is too early to tell how budget cuts could affect Agriculture programs, USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack recently said it is also too early to predict how the nation's credit downgrade will affect crop prices.

Until final budget cuts are made, movement on the Farm Bill will likely be placed on hold. Additional Agriculture cuts are possible, with direct payments targeted. Rep. Collin Peterson (D.-Minn.) estimated cuts could amount to $5 billion to $6 billion, or about 4 percent to 5 percent of the Agriculture budget.

Agriculture programs that would be exempt from cuts include the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and the Conservation Reserve Program.
