The House and Senate agriculture committees announced Wednesday they would have their first formal conference gathering on the farm bill on Oct. 30 in the Longworth House building.

Specifically, the first formal session will include opening remarks and discussion about the House version of the farm bill, HR 2641, the Federal Agriculture Reform and Risk Management Act, or FARRM. Given that there are 41 conference members (12 senators and 29 House members), it's likely that first face-to-face gathering will be mostly spent on opening statements.
