The farm bill expires at midnight tonight. This past weekend the House of Representatives passed and sent to the Senate a resolution that would combine the House “farm-only” farm bill (HR 2642) with the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) bill (HR 3102).
This should allow House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) to name farm bill conferees and hopefully move to conference. The Senate named its 12 conferees this summer. This is all taking place as Congress tries to avoid a government shutdown and deal with the debt ceiling.
