I thought that memebers of this group might be interested in this article on the Farm Bill. It discusses some of the projected economic benefits/consequences the Bill may bring about. I recall a statement from Sen Stabenow wherein she said it's far from perfect but a step in the right direction. For all it's bi-partisan wrangling, let's hope our House and Senate continue to work with the agencies, the farmers and the public interest groups to make the best use of taxpayer funds.
