CINCINNATI -- Despite its name, the Farm Bill isn’t just for farmers.
It’s a broad piece of legislation that affects everything from the price of milk and beef to federal nutrition programs for the nation’s poor families and senior citizens.
If a Farm Bill isn’t passed by early 2014, policy watchers warn, everyone will be impacted in some way.
Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown, a member of the committee working on a compromise plan, said he’s “very optimistic” that the House and Senate will agree on a Farm Bill soon.
Brown spoke with WCPO’s Brendan Keefe Thursday about the issue.
