Congress will Allow Farm Bill to Expire  


It has become clear that Congress will allow the 2008 Farm Bill to expire on September 30. The farm bill will remain stalled in the House of Representatives while Congress is in recess through the November election.


With the Senate passing a bipartisan bill back in June, responsibility for the stalemate falls at the feet of House leadership who has struggled to find a political sweet spot to move either a temporary extension of current law or the draft bill reported out of the Agriculture Committee. House leadership has faced political challenges centered on intra- and inter-party differences over funding for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). The House Republicans are divided over whether the Agriculture Committee-passed bill that proposes $16 billion in cuts to SNAP over the next ten years is adequate or not enough. Meanwhile, House Democrats generally consider the proposed SNAP cuts to be too severe. The two caucuses have remained just as divided over the implications of extending current legislation.

It is possible to have more locally grown, healthy food available for clients in health-care institutions. The Montana Healthy Farms Healthy People Statewide Meeting in Butte will feature success stories from agriculture and health-care professionals who have done just that, both in Montana and other states. Much has been done around the country in recent years to reconnect schools and children with healthy local foods. The goal of the meeting will be to take the first steps toward developing similar links with such institutions as hospitals, assisted-living facilities, and nursing homes.


The meeting will be of special interest to Montana farmers, agricultural distributors, institutional dieticians, and other health-care professionals. It will give them the opportunity to discuss policy surrounding agriculture, health, and the environment.


Space is limited, so register early! Registration is $15 and includes breakfast and lunch.
