Federal Farm Bill Schedule

We now have a schedule for the rest of the House farm bill process. The Nutrition Subcommittee will mark up this Thursday, June 14th at 10:00am Eastern. The commodity subcommittee will mark up the following Tuesday, June 19th, also at 10:00am Eastern. And the full committee- where the sparks could very well start to fly- begins consideration of the 2007 farm bill at 10:00am on June 26th, and will go until the 28th (at least). Chairman Peterson has also said he has a guarantee for floor time in the House the week of July 16th. The schedule is here, and you can listen to audio of the hearings here.  (Thank you Blog for Rural America)
