Selection Process for Farm Bill Conference Committee Continues

It was reported last week that Senate Committee on Agriculture Chair Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) selected the following seven Democratic Senators for the upcoming conference committee to marry the House and Senate versions of the next five-year Farm Bill: Tom Harkin (IA); Patrick Leahy (VT); Max Baucus (MT); Sherrod Brown (OH); Amy Klobuchar (MN); and Michael Bennett (CO). Yesterday, Senator Thad Cochran (R-MS) issued a statement announcing that he and four other Republican Senators have been selected for the upcoming conference committee: Pat Roberts (KS), Saxby Chambliss (GA), John Boozman (AR), and John Hoeven (R-ND).

The House of Representatives is still working to pass a partial Farm Bill including nutrition programs, as it passed a Farm Bill last month without those programs included. Our last report on the status of the House and Senate versions of the Farm Bill is available online.
