马克Rokala,政策主管

农业法案谈判代表表示,他们将需要完整的农业法案会议委员会的工作11月6日之后选举,希望他们能在最终协议在接下来的一周进行表决。

在过去的一周,参议院农业委员会主席,帕特·罗伯茨(R-KS)表示,他希望进展可能现在与选举之间进行,允许在一个跛脚鸭会议期间达成最后协议进行表决。跛脚鸭策略是谈判一个合乎逻辑的下一步;然而,这种策略并非没有challenges.Senator罗伯茨希望额外的时间允许对已举行了类似SNAP的工作要求,对话的标题,每个标题和最后得分开支方案变化会议工作的几个突出问题的谈判取得进展。然而,没有人知道的压力点是什么,使谈判compromise.Wait,没有农业法案延期?过去的代表大会有权使用永久性法律的威胁,与20世纪30年代平价定价公式对商品和牛奶,作为重锤完成农业法案。再仔细一看表示没有损坏政策的踢,直到12月1日为乳制品和后第一年的商品。因此,国会认为它有时间的最后期限之前,带着大家表。工作人员说,需要时间来工作于扩展延迟对会议的谈判工作。现实情况是,仍有立即下跌,其中39个当前农业法案计划基线资金到期时,2014年农业法案的weekend.Expiring基线过期手段与会者将需要找到从农业法案计划$ 2.85十亿重新批准这些计划包括对重要项目我们成员如有机认证的成本份额,有机的研究和推广,有机收集数据,开始农业项目和国家有机计划(NOP)必要的更新。 Negotiators also recognize that elections have consequences. One consequence would be who controls Congress, which would dramatically change negotiators’ political environment. If voters give Democrats the keys to Congress, that could be the pressure needed for members to get back to finish conference during the lame duck session.House Ranking Member Peterson has said numerous times that he wants to complete this farm bill yet this year; however, if Democrats gain control of Congress, Peterson would be the chair of the Committee. Peterson’s rank and file members of the Democratic party, all whom were shut out of the process of draft the farm bill policy as Republicans drafted a partisan bill, would have a strong message to House leadership that Democrats should rewrite the legislation to address their priorities.While the House has adjourned until after the November 6 election, the Senate remains in session for most of October. Both House Chair Conaway (R-TX) and Ranking Member Peterson (D-MN) have said they are ready to return to DC when needed.
