WASHINGTON – One of the biggest year-end challenges before Congress is a bill that impacts everything from the price of food to federal aid for farmers and people receiving food stamps.

Both the house and senate are proposing eliminating upfront payments designed to protect farmers from unexpected losses.

They would transition to an insurance program that pays farmers after they experience a loss.

Leaders in the house and senate are expected to have their first serious negotiations about the farm bill next week.
