The article discusses the farm legislation recommendation of U.S. House Agricultural Committee chairperson Larry Combest in 2013. Combest believes that the U.S. Congress should have adopted a farm bill in 2012 instead of opposing the budget cuts proposed by the administration of U.S. President Barack Obama. According to Combest, to address issues concerning budget cuts, the Congressional leaders should come up with a farm bill with a meaningful farm safety net.
