House Releases Draft of Farm Bill

The House of Representatives released a draft discussion of their Farm Bill last week. The bill, which is called the Federal Agriculture Reform and Risk Management Act (FARRM) was released last week by committee chairman Rep. Frank Lucas (Okla.) and ranking member Rep. Collin Peterson (Minn.).

When compared to the Senate bill that passed with bipartisan support earlier this month, the House version makes deeper cuts to nutrition programs. While the Senate bill cut a total of $4.5 billion from SNAP over 10 years, the House version cuts $16 billion over the same time period. Programs like the Specialty Crop Block Grant, the Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program and the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Snack Program are budgeted to receive funding consistent with the 2008 Farm Bill in both versions, but the Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP) may see a funding increase if initial budget amounts are retained as the bill moves forward.
