On Monday, June 4 at 2:15 EST, Senator Debbie Stabenow will host a press teleconference to discuss the Agriculture Reform, Food and Jobs Act of 2012, commonly referred to as the 2012 Farm Bill. On April 26, 2012 the bill was adopted by the full U.S. Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry and is very likely to be considered on the Senate Floor in the near future.
For call-in information for the teleconference, please RSVP to Ben Becker at Ben_Becker@ag.senate.gov.
