Senate Passes the Nearly $1 Trillion Farm Bill
After a year of debate, the almost $1 trillion farm bill was passed by the Senate and is now set to be signed by President Barack Obama. The bill establishes 5 years of United States farming and eating policy, cuts the food stamp program, increases farmers markets' spending, and ensures corn remains the most reliable source of food. Consumers will now have more inclusive product labeling, farmers will have cheaper crop insurance, farmers who want subsidies will have to follow certain conservation practices, and American sushi rice is now a subsidized row crop.
