Farm Bill talks will start this Friday

Farm Bill hearings will start soon, with the first discussion taking place this week.

It had been scheduled for last Saturday in Pennsylvania, but lawmakers had to stay close to the Capitol as they worked furiously to elect a Speaker of the House. It will now take place this Friday.

Pennsylvania is the home state of the new House Ag Committee Chair, Glenn Thomspon. He says getting a Farm Bill hammered out this year is his top priority.
