Today is the last day of the federal fiscal year. Lots of things are going on in D.C. this week, but what is happening with the farm bill in the midst of all this? NSAC has some answers

Update: On Saturday, September 28, the House approved the rule to allow for debate over the government funding bill without any delays, a rule which also combined the farm-only and nutrition-only farm bills back into a single comprehensive bill. Four Democrats voted yes and four Republicans voted no in what was otherwise a party-line vote. Whether this vote leads to the House appointing its farm bill conferees and starting the House-Senate farm bill conference remains to be seen.
