FY 2012 Ag Appropriations Bill

Thu, 17 Nov 2011 8:52:48 CST
The FY2012 Agricultural Appropriations Bill - as part of a larger package - has now gone through Conference and is coming back to the House and Senate for a final vote. The package includes a Continuing Resolution that will keep the Federal Government open until December 16. The total dollar amount for the Ag Appropriations portion of the bill is 136.6-billion dollars.

According to the Chairman of the Appropriations’ Committee Hal Rogers of Kentucky - the bill places restrictions on the implementation of a Grain Inspection and Packers and Stockyards Administration proposed rule that would have allowed harmful government interference in the private market for livestock and poultry.
