Senate Farm Bill Expected Soon

06/05/2018 - The Senate may introduce its farm bill in early June. The bill is expected to be a bipartisan effort by Senate Agriculture Committee Chairman Pat Roberts (Kan.) and Ranking Member Debbie Stabenow (Mich.), who are working on final details.

While the Academy does not expect the bill to make significant changes to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program or nutrition education, as the House's bill did, amendments could be introduced when the bill moves to the Senate floor.
