National Conference Call on the 2013 Farm Bill
The Agriculture Committees in both chambers of Congress have approved Farm Bill legislation, shifting the discussion on the five year renewal of the legislation to the floor. The current Farm Bill was extended last fall after efforts to pass the legislation stalled in the House, establishing a deadline of September 30th for renewal. The first of a series of complimentary conference calls on the Farm Bill, hosted by the regional offices of The Council of State Governments and the State Ag and Rural Leaders, took place on Wednesday, May 29th.
