Farm bill still awaiting action

WASHINGTON, D.C. (KFGO AM) -- Congress is back in session today in Washington D.C., and one of the issues many Minnesotans, especially the state's farmers, are hoping to see action on is the Farm Bill.

U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack says if the House doesn’t take action very soon - he sees imminent consequences.

Vilsack also says that extending the current Farm Bill is not an adequate fix, because that would not provide disaster assistance and runs the risk of congress scooping the money from direct payments and not using it to create a stronger safety net for the nation's food producers.
