Bipartisan farm bill

Apr 12, 2018 | 15:48 1 Early indications are for agreement on most of a new US farm bill, exception is for SNAP, the replacement for old food stamp program.
Crop and revenue risk programs would be mostly unchanged, conservation payments lowered in nearer term but increased longer term.
If Trump has his way, bipartisan agreement might be upset in favour of direct payments which could be more popular with many farmers, not so much so with those outside the country. Reply With Quote
