U.S. House of Representatives Delays Release of Farm Bill

03/21/2018 - The House Agriculture Committee rescheduled the release of its version of the 2018 farm bill. After trying to come to an agreement, ranking member Collin Peterson (Minn.) paused negotiations with chairman Mike Conaway (Texas) over the process and possible legislative proposals that would make changes to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program.

This snag is likely to push the release of the text until after Congress returns from its upcoming two-week recess.
