Anyone want some light reading? Stay away from the farm bill!

May 16, 2013

trattore_architetto_fran_01Yesterday South Dakota Representative Noem announced the farm bill has passed the House Agriculture Committee. The official name for the farm bill this year is the Federal Agriculture Reform and Risk Management Act of 2013 (HR6083) (PDF). Noem has been pushing for a long-term farm bill to be passed, perhaps she will get her wish this year. Personally I think she should be trying to wean farmers off government welfare; however that is a post for a different day.

As I read through this bill I can’t help but wonder how many legislatures that will vote on it will actually read through each section of the bill. In its current state (which will likely have more amendments) it is 576 pages long. The Table of Contents alone is 11 pages long. When reading the bill you must continuously look at current codified laws that are referenced. To show the pure vastness of this bill I am reproducing the Table of Contents below. This is exactly the kind of garbage bills that should be rejected in DC; sadly it is the standard.

    constantly i used to read smaller content that as well clear their motive, and
    that is also happening with this piece of writing which I am reading now.

    Cottonseed oil is the edible oil which is used for cooking as well as for salad dressing.
    When you see these words on a label, DON’T EAT IT OR GIVE IT TO YOUR FAMILY. Grapeseed oil, as the name suggests, is pressed form the seeds of grapes.
