Exploring Options for a New Farm Bill
AbstractMembers of the House Agriculture Committee have indicated an interest in rewriting the farm bill in 2001 (The Food and Fiber Letter). Pressure to rewrite the farm bill a year before it expires comes in part from the perception that the current farm bill does not provide adequate downside protection for farm income. A symptom of this problem is the fact that Congress has passed substantial assistance packages to supplement farmers’ incomes in each of the past three years.
