Washington lawmakers are set to start hammering out a deal on the farm bill.
That bill sets farm policies and nutrition guidelines. Congress failed to pass this bill last year so it extended the old one temporarily.
If a new farm bill isn't passed by the end of the year, programs would revert back to an old law from 1949. That would mean a significant increase for many items including milk.
"This is an important bill for Wisconsin, especially for our dairy farmers," said Rep. Sean Duffy (R-7th District). "I want to make sure that we get a farm bill done. So I'm optimistic that we will see an agreement between both the House and the Senate."
Newsline 9 reached out to other local lawmakers for their thoughts on the farm bill. No one got back to us.
