The 2014 Farm Bill is a big win not only for Michigan farmers, but for our families and communities as well. Senator Debbie Stabenow, the first Chairwoman of the Senate Agriculture Committee from Michigan in over 120 years, wrote the 2014 Farm Bill that cuts spending by $23 billion while strengthening efforts to help Michigan farmers and businesses create jobs. This bill represents the most significant reform of agricultural policy in decades by eliminating direct payment subsidies that farmers can receive for crops they are not even growing, streamlining and consolidating programs, and cracking down on waste and abuse in food assistance programs.
