The US Senate may take up the farm bill this week. Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar said she's proud that the Ag Committee has produced what she calls a forward-looking farm bill with money for cullulosic biofuel production and well as more money for conservation. The bill also includes a permanent disaster assistance program and more money for food stamp programs. Klobuchar said the program could restrict farm subsidies to farmers with income no greater than $750,000 per year, to make sure federal support goes only to farmers who genuinely need the money.
