The House Agriculture Committee adopted, 35-11, the Federal Agriculture, Risk, and Reform Management Act (H.R. 6083) July 12. The House Farm Bill would provide no mandatory funding for the legislation’s energy title, potentially killing rural energy programs. The measure would authorize nearly $1.4 billion in discretionary funding for energy programs, ranging from loan guarantees and grants for biofuels to support for renewable energy and energy efficiency programs, but little has been appropriated from previous years’ farm bills. Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH) said July 12 that no schedule has been set for taking up the measure on the floor, but there is some belief that the farm bill could, like the transportation package, move to a conference committee without first hitting the House floor.
