Mark Rokala,政策总监

农民票据谈判者表示,他们将在11月6日之后完成农用账单会议委员会的工作TH.选举,希望他们可以在接下来的一周上投票。

参议院农业委员会主席Pat Roberts(R-Ks)表示,他希望在现在和选举之间取得进展,以允许在跛足鸭会议期间对最终协议进行投票。蹩脚的鸭子策略是谈判者的逻辑下一步;但是,这种战略并非没有挑战.Enator Roberts希望额外的时间允许谈判者在举办会议工作的几个未突出的问题上取得进展,这是按扣,会话冠军的工作要求,每个标题,每个标题和计划变革的最终分数。但是,没有人知道压力点是什么让谈判者妥协。等行为,没有农场账单延期?过去的大会使用了永久法的威胁,20世纪30年代的商品和牛奶的平价定价公式,作为沉重的锤子来完成农场账单。仔细观察表明,达到12月1日的乳制品和商品的第一年后都没有任何破坏性政策。所以,国会感觉有时间让每个人带到那些截止日期之前的桌子。工作人员说,花时间延长延期延迟他们在会议谈判方面的工作。现实是仍然存在立即下行,其中39个当前的农场比尔计划基线资金到期,当时2014年农场账单在周末到期时。Expiring Baseline意味着会员将需要查找28.5亿美元的农场账单计划,以重新授权包括对我们重要的计划有机认证成本份额,有机研究和延长,有机数据集合,开始农业计划和国家有机计划(NOP)的必要更新等成员。 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.
