The 2008 Farm Bill expired 15 months ago, but Congress had been unable to agree on provisions for a new bill. The battle mainly was over the food stamp program, not conservation programs, Nomsen said.

Over 10 years, the bill would cost about $956 billion — 80 percent of that goes to food stamp and nutrition programs. Crop insurance gets about $90 billion, conservation gets $56 billion and commodity programs get $44 billion.
