House Ag Committee Field Hearing
I report on, and give my take on what was said at the House ag committee hearing in Galesburg, Illinois.
It is my belief that a farm bill is very likely to be passed before the election. The winds have changed and I think it may get done.
I have testified to Congress before and this “field hearing” was much like all the others I have been at.
From the sounds of it, crop insurance will be a big part of the farm bill and direct payments are gone. I also think chairman Lucas would have liked for the farm bill to not have had to be caught up in the current big government/raise taxes/cut government debate that is now going on in Washington, D.C.
Listen and enjoy, not a real long podcast.
I still like my idea of a farmer choice farm bill. The link below is where anyone can give testimony to the House Ag Committee in regards to what should be in ( or not in) the next farm bill.
