Kansas Farmers Wary of Farm Bill


WICHITA, Kan. (AP)  Kansas farmers remain leery of the scaled-down farm bill passed by the U.S. House as they wait to see what actually makes it into law.  But the competing versions for now preserve the one thing most cherished here: crop insurance subsidies.  Kansas Farm Bureau president Steve Baccus says the bill is good for Kansas agriculture.  It maintains the crop insurance program, but gone from both the House and Senate versions of the bill are subsidies that are paid regardless whether a recipient farms or not.  Kansas farmers collected $927 million in agricultural subsidies last year.
