Analyst: Farm bill possibly delayed until 2013

from Reuters via Costa Rica Star

Congress could delay passage of a new five-year farm bill until spring planting, given the full plate of legislation needed after the election to avoid a fiscal cliff with its mandatory U.S. budget cuts, a top farm policy expert said Monday. "My prediction is that we will get a farm bill by April 2013. It will look very close to the Senate version," Barry Flinchbaugh, a Kansas State University agricultural economist who advises legislators on shaping U.S. farm bills, told an agricultural bankers meeting.
