After a rough growing season in Northern Michigan and around the country, lawmakers are working to quickly pass the farm bill.
The bill passed the Senate back in July, and is usually renewed every 5 years.
But it has yet to make it through the house, because a vote has not yet been scheduled.
In part, the farm bill helps to provide disaster relief for farmers who have suffered losses, including here in Northern Michigan.
We spoke with Phil Korson from the Cherry Marketing Institute today about the impact of the bill on our region.
The farm bill expires on September 30th.
If it doesn't pass then, lawmakers will push to have it done by the end of the year.
