A Farm Bill passed by the U.S. Senate this week will cut spending by about 24 billion dollars within the next 10 years.
Most of the reduction will be targeted at conservation programs, farm subsidies and the food stamp program. The bill now goes on to the U.S. House. According to Assistant Director of the Rural Policy Program at the Center for Rural Affairs, Traci Bruckner, the bill will not only help farmers but will also help the environment.
