The Senate Agriculture Committee is holding a public field hearing on the 2012 farm bill in Kansas today. Committee Chairwoman Debbie Stabenow and Senator Pat Roberts will lead the hearing. Senator Roberts says the budget situation on Capitol Hill will likely overshadow the discussions.
The hearing will be held from 9 a.m. local time until noon. This is the second farm bill field hearing this year. Chairwoman Stabenow hosted the first hearing in Lansing, Michigan in May.
