Still Waiting on the Farm Bill

The agriculture community continues to wait on the details from the farm bill negotiations by the House and Senate Agriculture Committee leaders. Dairy is the major issue that needs to be resolved for the bill to move forward. Other outstanding issues include catfish inspection, Country-of-Origin Labeling (COOL), GIPSA rulemaking, and the King amendment on interstate commerce. It is expected that when the farm bill conference committee meets that there will be votes on COOL, GIPSA, and King. Efforts are being made to complete the bill by the end of the month.
