The current farm bill will expire Sept. 30. Congress has a handful of days to make an important decision, and they have three options: pass a final farm bill, extend the 2014 Farm Bill or let the farm bill expire. At this point, swift passage of a final farm bill before the Sept. 30 deadline seems unlikely. Yet, Congress has been unable to reach consensus. In the absence of a new farm bill, it is imperative that lawmakers extend current legislation.
