Senate Ag Committee Farm Bill Mark-Up Postponed
This (Wednesday) morning's farm bill mark-up has been postponed. According to Senate Ag Committee Chair Debbie Stabenow - the committee has made significant progress and has bipartisan agreement on the bulk of the Farm Bill. She says they are committed to continuing to work together in a bipartisan way to come to agreement on a few outstanding issues. Noting that the bill impacts 16-million jobs and a huge sector of America's economy - Stabenow said it is important to move prudently to create the best possible product. A new date and time for the rescheduled hearing was not announced Tuesday night.
