Farm Bill

Partisan politics may meet its match in the 2018 farm bill.

The massive legislation, versions of which will be introduced this spring in the U.S. House and Senate, is shaping up to be less about political affiliations and more about finding common ground.

Congress has less than two weeks to act before the current farm bill expires.

That could leave dozens of federal program in limbo, affecting everything from crop insurance to food aid for the poor.

Spending on food aid is one of the reasons that House Republican leaders have refused to call the measure for a vote.
