(KETK) - Tyler Tx — The senate is considering a massive, five-year farm bill this week that would set a policy for farm subsidies and Food Stamps.
If it passes the senate, the bill is planned to be presented to house later this month.
According to the Senate Agricultural Committee, the bill could cost 96-billion dollars a year.
This money goes to help insure crops, fund food stamps, and research.
But not what matter decision is rendered, it will affect everyone who buys and sells food.
Experts say, research becomes more important year after year, as the amount of farm land continues to become more scarce.
