Grassley said there was no sense of "farm revolt" in response to Congress' inability to pass a new Farm Bill, and that a one-year extension of the existing Farm Bill "should prevent any backlash from developing," reports DTN/The Progressive Farmer. He also said Congress will likely pass a drought disaster aid bill. Even though an extension will likely be implemented, it doesn't mean Congress will stop work on a new Farm Bill, DTN reports. It could act any time during the lame-duck session after the November elections, or in early 2013.
