New FBLE Backgrounder, Covid-19 Response and Farm Bill Policy, Farm Bill Law Enterprise (Aug. 20, 2020)
Since March 2020—and as of August 2020—Congress has passed four emergency response bills. To help elucidate these developments FBLE has published a COVID-19 Response & Farm Bill Policy Backgrounder. This Backgrounder provides an overview of the new legislation and takes a closer look at how it impacts domestic agricultural and nutrition policies included in the 2018 Farm Bill. As Congress prepares to pass the next stimulus package, this Backgrounder maps the current landscape of farm-bill related, federal food and agriculture policy enacted during the pandemic.
