WASHINGTON D C (WHTC) -- The final phase of the effort to pass a Farm Bill, hopefully, got started on Wednesday afternoon. U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow is Chairwoman of the senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry. A conference committee made up of Senators and Representatives from both parties and both Chambers of Congress are meeting to complete a five year Farm Bill that will reduce deficit and create agriculture jobs. Stabenow said in a press release, quote, “This bill is the most significant reform to agriculture policy in decades, it’s critical for the economy and it’s long past time to get it done.” The proposed Senate Farm Bill would eliminate duplicate programs, saving taxpayer dollars.
