House Passes 2013 Agriculture Spending Bill

The House Appropriations subcommittee on Agriculture passed its annual spending bill, which includes many programs specific to the Academy's agenda.

The bill allocates $19.4 billion, a cut of $365 million from the previous year. The bill's outline includes cuts to nutrition programs including the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, which would see a $408 million cut from last year's funding. The bill also includes $2.5 billion in agriculture research - a decrease of $35 million from 2012. Conservation programs, food safety and the Food and Drug Administration all received cuts compared to last year's spending levels. The WIC program, however, was given a $303 million increase from last year's funding levels. The bill will have to be passed by the full House and the full Senate before President Obama signs it into law.
