054 – 2012 Farm Bill Senate Draft

Play

Senate Agricultural Committee has sent a Farm Bill to be “Marked Up”.

A bill mark up is where a committee goes over a proposal and “marks up” the paper with Farm billchanges.  But, the major stuff has already been decided in the Senate Agricultural Committee.

$23 Billion in budget cuts over a 10 year period.  Major component will be the Agricultural Risk Coverage Program – the same thing that purposed during the “super” committee debate last year.

I go over many of the details of this program.

Cotton growers get their “STAX” program.

A new specialty crop program, Supplemental Coverage Option.

Conservation, food stamps, Dairy, etc. programs are discussed.

I also further discuss where the house agricultural committee is at and doing with the farm bill.
