The Political and Legislative History that Underlies the Farm Bill
Keywords:Farm Bill, Agricultural Policy, Farm Policy, Food Policy
In The Fault Lines of Farm Policy, Jonathan Coppess explores the evolution of the farm bill through the political and congressional interests representing the United States’ three main commodity production regions: the South, the Midwest, and the Great Plains. Coppess combines analysis of his direct involvement in the legislative and executive branches’ farm bills in 2008 and 2014 with extensive historical, contemporary political, and legislative analyses in his current academic role. Coppess served in the U.S. Senate and at the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) from 2006 to 2013. These rich descriptions explain the underpinnings of congressional efforts and identify the drivers of American farm policy development. . . .
