The article discusses a proposed farm bill which is scheduled to be introduced before the U.S. Senate after the Presidential elections in November 2004. According to Christy Syfert, House Agricultural Committee staff member, the structure of the bill will depend upon who becomes the U.S. President, who will be appointed as the secretary of agriculture and who will control the Senate and determine leadership in the House. She said that money will be a key consideration. She also said how the new farm bill will look will also depend a lot on what comes out of hearings in Washington and across the country.
