From the National Farmers Union:
The 2013 Farm Bill is moving along, as both the House and Senate Agriculture Committees released drafts of the legislation this week. The Senate Ag Committee is scheduled to mark up the bill Tuesday, May 14, at 10:00 a.m. EDT, and its House counterpart is planning a markup for Wednesday, May 15, at 10:00 a.m. EDT. Both committees will broadcast the markups live on their websites, www.agriculture.senate.gov and www.agriculture.house.gov.
The deadline for Senators to file amendments to the bill was Friday, May 10th at 5:00 p.m., and House members must file amendments by Monday at 6:00 p.m. NFU will send out additional information as we get it, or watch www.NFU.org/farmbill for updates.
