This article comments on tobacco buyout legislation in the U.S. The tobacco buyout is in the forefront for farmers in the Southeastern States. Far from a done deal, the tobacco buyout is, however, the closest that it's been to reality. As the U.S. Congress recessed for the August break, the Senate and House had both passed legislation that included a tobacco buyout. The two bills differ substantially and will be resolved in conference committee. The buyout was part of a corporate tax bill to repeal an export tax rebate given certain businesses in earlier legislation. The bill contains numerous provisions.
