The article reports on the passage by the U.S. House Agriculture Committee of a 940 billion U.S. dollars farm bill 36-10 on a largely partisan vote. The bill calls for some 40 billion U.S. dollars in spending cuts over the next decade, with half of that total coming from nutrition programs with the balance will come from cuts to other titles. It will eliminate direct payments that will be used to fund expanded crop insurance programs along with target prices for rice and peanuts.
