FPJ0903F - Mercier - External factors that are driving the 2012 US Farm Bill debate

As with any policy-making process, the final product of the current farm bill debate in the United States (US), intended to culminate in 2012 by the time the Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008 expires, will reflect a combination of  external forces and internal policy trade-offs. The range of issues covered in farm bills continue to expand far beyond traditional farm and commodity policy, a trend that started in the 1970s with the arrival of domestic nutrition assistance programs. This paper focuses on the key external factors that are generated within the US, specifically the impact of the changing political, demographic, and budgetary environments.
