Farm bill cleared with bipartisan support

Getting started

A farm bill has cleared the House Agriculture Committee and the Senate Agriculture and Consumer Affairs Committee.

The farm bill, the Farm Security Act of 2017, cleared both committees on Wednesday, with the final bill expected to be sent to the President on Thursday.

The bill is expected to include the first farm bill to give states the power to require farmers to give back some of the money they spend on land and farm subsidies.

The USDA has argued that the bill, known as the Farm Bill, would save farmers money by requiring them to give the government more money back for things like soil maintenance and crop insurance.

Farmers are currently required to give away at least 10% of their income to the government.

This bill would require them to return at least 25% of that money.
