Farm Bill 2023 Reauthorization
The Farm Bill is a multiyear package of legislation that oversees a variety of domestic and international food and agricultural programs. While the overwhelming majority of the Farm Bill covers programs in the United States, CRS focuses its advocacy on international food aid programs, including Food for Peace, Food for Progress, McGovern-Dole Food for Education and Farmer-to-Farmer. In anticipation of the 2023 Farm Bill reauthorization, CRS and its supporters will engage legislators—especially members of the House and Senate Agriculture Committees—to reauthorize these Farm Bill programs and to amend specific provisions in the bill that strengthen and improve program efficiency, effectiveness and sustainability.
