Farm Bill direction in limbo until after election

It is still unclear what will happen with the Farm Bill after the election. Although House Majority Leader Eric Cantor has said he intends to bring the “issue” to the floor after the election, that is not a clear commitment to bringing a five-year Farm Bill to a vote. Cantor was vague about what might happen in the short time frame available. In fact, there are three main scenarios to choose from, as outlined online on OTA’s Farm Bill pages. If you have questions or want help in reaching out to members of Congress, contact, Marni Karlin, OTA’s Associate Director of Legislative and Legal Affairs.
