The House of Representative’s lopsided version of the Farm Bill has failed, and advocates for the needy and environmental programs say they are glad. Even the Secretary of Agriculture says the bill was mean-spiritedly (not in so many words of course) wouldn’t have done enough to help rural America (read: small farmers).
Farm Bill. The words fall like an Ambien. But avoid all knowledge of what’s within this $1 trillion package, and you’ll miss out. Do you want GMO labeling, a better deal for organic farmers? Would you like to see Monsanto get slapped for sneaky dealings? Follow the action as Congress plows forward.
