So, the Farm Bill passed the House and Senate, now — and heads to conference. When — and what will the Senate and House confer about, anyway?
What’s in there for you? Here are the need-to-knows.
In Washington, the House and Senate have now passed their respective versions of the proposed 2013 farm bill, which would take effect for fiscal 2014 through fiscal 2018.
Both bills have energy titles — meaning that, should they find passage, as expected this summer, in the House and Senate, the measures in the Energy title will come up for negotiation in the House-Senate conference, but not the existence of the title itself.
In what many would find surprising, the Republican-dominated House of Representatives is far more generous in the Energy title — $1.405B vs $1.184B in the Senate version.
In today’s Digest, we look at the two different versions of the Energy title — what’s getting funding, what’s not — and how much, and how. The programs at a glance, the links to the full data, and the bottom line – by following the page links below.
