FAPRI Takes Closer Look at Commodity Tiles of House and Senate Farm Bills

The Food and Agricultural Policy Research Institute at the University of Missouri has released an in-depth look at how the commodity titles of the House and Senate versions of the farm bill compare. According to the analysis of the commodity provisions - the savings gap between the two versions is bigger that a Congressional Budget Office analysis showed. FAPRI finds the Senate bill saves 5.5-billion dollars more than the House version. Looking at the possible consequences of provisions in the two bills - the FAPRI summary notes both bills have a lot in common and therefore would have similar consequences in many respects.
