Senate Ag Hopes for May Farm Bill Markup

Senate Ag Committee Chair Debbie Stabenow announced Thursday that she - too - plans to markup a new farm bill next month - though she has not set a specific date yet. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has indicated his intentions to bring it to the Senate floor next month as well. Stabenow wants to make sure a new farm bill is in place by September 30th - when the current extension of the 2008 law expires.
