Last Friday the Senate Committee on Agriculture released a draft of the 2012 Farm Bill. The Committee plans to begin its markup of the bill tomorrow morning at 9:00, and markup is expected to continue through Thursday.
NFU is pleased with many of the provisions in the bill, and issued a letter to the Committee outlining some of the amendments and changes to the legislation we support.
Below are links to a detailed section-by-section summary of the bill, as well as a summary of the bill’s highlights.
