Farm Bill Conference Progress

This evening, we expect the farm bill conference committee to file its conference report. The committee will likely use most of today to reach a final agreement on issues related to country-of-origin labeling, language in the House’s farm bill that would prevent states from denying the sale of products produced in another state, and Grain Inspection, Packers & Stockyards Administration (GIPSA) livestock marketing rules. This sets the stage for House consideration of the farm bill later this week, which House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) placed on the legislative schedule for Wednesday.
