Agriculture Spending Bill Finalized

The Senate and House conference committee charged with combining both chambers' appropriation bills completed its final draft of the FY 2012 Agriculture appropriation bill. While the final bill includes $19.8 billion in discretionary spending, which is a $350 million cut from FY 2011 levels, there is some good news for nutrition and food programs.

The WIC program will receive $6.618 billion, which is $36 million above what was passed in the Senate two weeks ago. SNAP will receive $80.4 billion in mandatory spending and child nutrition programs will receive $18.2 billion, including $2 million for Farm to School and $1 million for School Breakfast Program Grants.

The bill was not without disappointments as well. In this bill, Congress voted to make changes to Healthy Hunger Free Kids, the historic legislation passed last year. Congress chose to override the U.S. Department of Agriculture's role in writing the regulations, which ADA opposed. ADA felt USDA was listening to concerns and should be given time and support to review more than 130,000 comments. Having Congress step in negates efforts being made by USDA to make evidence-based decisions.
