As you know, both the Senate and House Agriculture Committees held their respective committee “markup” sessions this past week. Thanks to everyone who wrote, called, tweeted and watched the sessions live. There are so many important pieces to this Farm Bill, that is does take some extra effort to stay up to date, so we thank you and the great policy minds in our “good food community” for staying sharp.
Our friends at the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition have been keeping a close eye on each amendment that has been voted on. You can see their Amendment Tracker here and read their latest analysis.
We will be following the ongoing deliberations of the farm bill on the Senate floor, where it will be considered all week, so stay tuned for the final determinations and discussions on how these amendments will affect sustainable agriculture.
