How can I ever understand a 1,000+ page complex, omnibus piece of legislation?
The U.S Farm Bill is a complex bill passed by the U.S. Congress every 5-7 years. The Farm Bill contains billions of dollars in funds for agricultural subsidies and farm relief programs, hunger relief and emergency food aid, environmental conservation programs, and many other government programs.
