Updating Information Links on the Farm Bill

My farm bill page was stale because some of the links had not been updated for new farm bill programs and updates. I agree and I have tried to refresh the page. Some websites I used for the 2008 farm bill haven't been updated as well, but I will try to keep current on new information. Some groups still have their policy positions for the "2012 farm bill" up on their websites, so at least I'm ahead of them.

Please feel free to offer any links you might have for the legislation. Send them to chris.clayton@dtn.com
