It was a long and sometimes ridiculous process but we have a new Farm Bill. If you’re wondering where you can go to find out what’s in the new law, here’s a list of links:
- There are many links and documents on the U.S. Senate Ag Committee’s Farm Bill page
- If you want to keep it somewhat simple, here’s a document that is a summary of each title and major provisions prepared by Senate Ag
- If you’re into all the details, here’s a link to the final bill text, which is a conference report. Conference reports are the documents that reconcile competing House and Senate versions of legislation. The conference report becomes the final bill and is voted on by both houses.
- Here’s a summary of the bill prepared by the House Ag Committee
- The National Farmers Union has this page devoted to the Farm Bill
- The Congressional Budget Office’s score, or budgetary impact, of the bill
