On Thursday, the Senate Agriculture Committee announced it will consider the Senate version of the farm bill. Markup of the bill is scheduled for Wednesday at 8:30 a.m Central time. According to committee leaders, the bipartisan bill will “provide much-needed certainty” for farmers and ranchers. The bill could be passed by the Senate by the end of this month. Leader Mitch McConnell has previously said that he would like to pass the farm bill before the Senate goes on Independence Day recess.
