House Agriculture Committee Expected to Markup Farm Bill Next Week

The House Agriculture Committee is expected to kick-off the process for reauthorizing the farm bill next week. The House Agriculture Committee is expected to officially release a draft bill this week and bring it to the Committee for consideration next week where they will hold a markup to consider additional amendments.

The measure is expected to contain provisions in the nutrition title that democrats will likely oppose, which could force the bill to pass the committee through a partisan vote. If approved the measure would then be situated to come before the full House later in the spring. The Senate has not set a schedule for considering a Senate farm bill draft.
