Farm Bill Likely To be Separate from Budget Deal



(NAFB)--House Speaker John Boehner says he doesn’t believe the deficit savings in a 2013 farm bill should be used to reach a budget deal to replace sequester at the end of the year. Boehner has told Representative Paul Ryan not to look to the farm bill for savings - as he believes it’s a separate issue. Farm bill discussions seem to be making more progress than budget talks - as House Budget Chair Paul Ryan and Senate Budget Chair Patty Murray debate whether tax increases should be part of any budget deal.
