South Dakota’s congresswoman says it’s possible a new farm bill could be passed as part of a deal to keep the country from going over the fiscal cliff.
Representative Kristi Noem says party leaders have told her they want to pass a new five-year farm bill. But with the deadline to prevent automatic spending cuts looming, congress has a lot to tackle.
Noem says the farm bill may be in play in negotiations because the house version would create $35,000,000,000 in savings.
