The article focuses on the 500 billion U.S. dollars farm bill approved by the U.S. House of Representatives Agricultural Committee in May 2013. UGA Peanut Economist Nathan Smith said the bills produced by the U.S. House and Senate's agricultural committees are similar as they eliminated direct payments, but offer some stabilization for rural economies. Georgia Peanut Commission executive director Don Koehler expects debate to follow in Congress in the coming weeks.
