Farm Bill: Senate Ag Committee Hearing
Sara Wyant reported yesterday at Agri-Pulse Online that, “Citing the need to focus on ‘principles, not programs,’ Senate Agriculture Committee Chairwoman Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich, kicked off the first official 2012 farm bill hearing today. An ‘all-star’ cast, including Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack and former Secretary Dan Glickman testified during the event, which focused on ‘The Role, Risks and Challenges for American Agriculture and the next Farm Bill in meeting the demands of a Growing World.’”
(FarmPolicy Note: A video replay of yesterday’s hearing, along with submitted testimony from the witnesses is available here.  Recall that a summary of House Agriculture Committee hearings on the Farm Bill from last spring and summer, prior to the November 2010 elections, can be viewed here.  And a summary of Senate hearings relating to the Farm Bill from last summer, under the previous Congress, can be found here.  The next Senate Farm Bill hearing, “Opportunities for Growth: Michigan and the 2012 Farm Bill,” will be on Tuesday at Michigan State University.)
