House and Senate conferees concluded negotiations yesterday on the long overdue and much anticipated Farm Bill (The Agricultural Act of 2014).  The legislation includes several important measures and spending increases for the specialty crop industry including:  research, pest and disease prevention, state block grants, and child nutrition.  The conference report is expected to be voted on in the House tomorrow and in the Senate on Friday. ACTION IS NEEDED BY YOU to ensure its passage in both chambers.

As expected, there were more fireworks today on Farm Bill related issues in the U.S. House of Representatives as the food stamp/nutrition component of the bill made its way to the House Floor for consideration.
