FILE - This Dec. 4, 2013 file photo shows Senate Agriculture Committee Chair Sen. Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich., left, and House Agriculture Committee Chairman Rep. Frank Lucas, R-Okla. on Capitol Hill in Washington. Farm-state lawmakers are pushing for final passage of the massive, five-year farm bill as it heads to the House floor Wednesday — member by member, vote by vote. There are goodies scattered through the bill for members from all regions of the country: a boost in money for crop insurance popular in the Midwest; higher cotton and rice subsidies for Southern farmers; renewal of federal land payments for Western states. There are cuts to the food stamp program — $800 million a year, or around 1 percent — for Republicans who say the program is spending too much money, but they are low enough that some Democrats will support them.
