Current farm programs will expire at the end of this month, and Congress has yet to hammer out a deal on a new farm bill.
Michgan Senator Debbie Stabenow chairs the Senate agriculture committee, and she tells WSJM that the holdup is in the House.
They rejected a comprehensive approach and instead passed two separate bills to go along with one from the Senate. Stabenow says they're now taking their time selecting conference committee members.
Farm programs will revert back to the 1949 farm bill if no action is taken. That will mean huge spikes in milk prices by early 2014, pssibly reaching prices of 6 dollars a gallon.
