December 21, 2018 - On December 20, President Trump signed the 2018 Farm Bill - properly titled "Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018" Public Law 115-334.

Below we attach the Text of the Act, the House-Senate Conference Report, and Senate Floor Remarks of Charles Grassley (R-IA).

In the text of the Act please note that Crop Insurance (Title XI) begins on page 430 of the PDF. Please also see the TOC on page 9.

Senator Grassley's comments are typical of the view of fiscally conservative Republicans on the farm subsidies issues.

Readers are referred to the Op-Ed of conservative commentator Gracy Olmstead in the New York Times on December 14, 2018.

We also recomment the reader review "Farm Bill 101" on the Farm Aid website. This excellent primer will take the reader on a tour of the principal provisions of the 12 Titles of the Farm Bill.
