APRIL 15TH, 2008 | Harkin for Senate
Earlier today the Senate-House conference committee on the farm bill, approved three major titles of the bill: credit, research and trade. Staff for committee members continues to work through a few remaining issues in each title, which are expected to be resolved.
Senator Harkin said of the development:
“The farm bill conference committee continues to work toward completion of this farm bill,” said Harkin. “The adoption of these three titles moves toward our overall goal of passing a strong, national bill. These are critical investments that will bring funding and good policy for agriculture research, international food aid and support for beginning farmers to meet needs in agriculture and the changing economy.”
