Congress Running Out Of Time To Agree On New Farm Bill

WASHINGTON (AP) — Time is running out to come to an agreement on the farm bill — an issue that will have a major impact on industries in Northern Michigan.

The Senate will not extend the current farm law if Congress can't agree on a new one before adjourning next week.
Some of the big battles are over funding for food stamps and crop subsidies.
Lawmakers are worried milk prices could skyrocket if a deal isn't in place when dairy subsidies expire on January 1st.
