Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – The 2018 Farm Bill, an $867 billion dollar legislative package, recently passed in the U.S. Senate and is now headed to conference committee to be merged with the version passed in the U.S. House.

The bill’s co-author, U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow, called in today on the Sunny Morning Show to talk about the measure and it’s future.

Stabenow explained that a new Farm Bill is authored every five years and covers a wide array of program funding in agriculture, nutrition and rural development.

She said the conference committee process may be a tough one, as the House version has some significant differences from the Senate version, but she is confident the majority of what is in the Senate version will make it to the final legislation.

The measure passed with a wide bipartisan majority in the Senate, 86-11, and Stabenow says that large majority will work to ensure the effective creation of the bill for the President to sign.
