The House has finally passed a Farm Bill. The 2008 Farm Bill expired at the end of 2012 and ever since then things have been running on continuing resolutions.

In Georgia, agriculture is still very much a big deal. For those of us in the Metro Area, we don’t often think about this issue. Continuing resolutions make things difficult for farmers because they operate on a yearly planting cycle while the CR’s are usually only a few months to a year at a time. Having stability and continuity is incredibly important for farmers when they make their decisions about what and when to plant.

Upon passage of the Farm Bill, Rep. Austin Scott had a few words.
