Congress Working On Five Year Farm Bill

Story by WBGZ Radio

Congressman Aaron Schock says he's optimistic that a new Farm Bill will be passed soon.  He says the House and Senate have reached a deal on the food and nutrition program, which was part of the hang-up during the Farm Bill debate last year.  Schock says now they're working on a few smaller issues that impact southern crops.

As far as crop insurance, Schock believes the current program will stay in-tact.
