As of late June, both the Senate and House versions of the 2018 Farm Bill have passed. Now, Congress has to collaborate to create one bill before the 2014 Farm Bill expires. We may see compromise and action by the end of this week.
The Senate released their version of the 2018 Farm Bill on June 8. This bipartisan draft of the bill is expected do better than the House draft, which was shot down last month.
Last month, the House Agriculture Committee introduced their draft of the proposed 2018 Farm Bill. On Friday, May 18th, the House’s draft 2018 Farm Bill was voted down 198-213. As our friends at the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition stated, this House version was “one of the most anti-farmer bills ever seen.”
In the new year, the United States legislature will introduce the 2018 Farm Bill. Here is some information on what the new bill will contain and how it will impact you if it’s passed.
