Farm Bill Updates

The four agriculture committee leaders were not able to meet the November 4 deadline to submit recommendations to the deficit Super Committee, with the commodity title continuing to be the source of disagreement.

It is believed that the final breakdown of the $23 billion in cuts will be $13 billion from the commodity programs, $6 billion from conservation and $4 billion from nutrition remaining constant. Karen Ehrens, RD, LRD, chair of ADA's Farm Bill Working Group and a member of the Legislative and Public Policy Committee, attended the Farm Bill Conference in Fargo, N.D., sponsored by Sen. Kent Conrad (N.D.) and the Center for Agricultural Policy and Trade Studies at North Dakota State University.

Discussions about the future of writing the Farm Bill now seem to look more toward 2013. Members of the House and Senate Committees do not believe a Farm Bill will have a majority vote to pass the House in 2012. Until final recommendations are made by the deficit Super Committee, a Farm Bill might be on hold.
