The article talks about the 2008 Farm Bill that expired on September 30, 2012. Whether or not the U.S. House of Representatives will take up the farm bill during the lame-duck sessions before the end of 2012 is explored as well as if the next farm bill will be part of the legislation to avoid the fiscal cliff. A one year extension of the current farm bill for 2013 is proposed for continuation of various U.S. Department of Agriculture programs governed by the farm bill legislation.
