Washington legislators are working on developing the policy for the new Farm Bill, which is due next year. Texas Republican Mike Conaway, Chair of the House Ag Committee, said developments in the Senate this week mean the Farm Bill process can move forward.
Conaway is still planning for the farm bill process in the House to wrap up within the next couple of months.
Conaway says there are some hard decisions ahead when it comes to the available funding in the farm bill and the needs that are out there in agriculture.
