Farm Bill likely to stall in Washington
Nathan Lehman WTNY -- The deadline for getting a new farm bill passed in Washington is just a few weeks from now, but few are optimistic that one will be passed.
The Senate has passed it's version, but the House version has yet to come up for vote with doubt that the votes are there to pass it. The current state of the bill was the subject of a roundtable discussion at Cornell Cooperative Extension of Jefferson County on Thursday with a representative of Senator Kirsten Gillibrand in attendance. One of the issues brought up during the discussion was the lack of understanding most members of the public may have in regards to the bill itself, and that could extend to certain members of Congress as well.
The current farm bill expires on September 30.
