The article reports on the settlement reached by the Bush Administration and Rep. Collin Peterson of Minnesota over the proposed farm legislation in the U.S. According to the author, the proposed farm legislation was not accepted by the government in the start because it was said to be expensive. However, it changed its decision and is already willing to accept the proposal, although the reduction made by Rep. Peterson on its cost is still higher than the President's aim price.
