Both chambers of Congress passed the farm bill and appointed conferees before the August recess. House Agriculture Committee Ranking Member Collin Peterson says the conference committee process is continuing during the break. “We had a face-to-face meeting before we left and we’ve had two conference calls. We’re going to have another one this week and we’re going to get together again August 27 and we have our staff working on all of the titles. We’re all committed to getting this thing done by September 30.”
