Efforts continue between the House and Senate Agriculture Committees leaders to try and finalize the farm bill.  Key issues continue to be the commodity title and the level of cuts to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).  The WRDA bill is key for agriculture because of the efforts to modernize the locks and dams on the nation's waterway systems that are vital for the movement of grain and supplies.
