At Issue: Farm Bill & Milk Prices

Posted: Updated:
SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. -

A new Farm Bill has not been passed on Capitol Hill yet, and that's leading to concerns about a possible "dairy cliff," where milk prices could skyrocket.

But Vermont's deputy agriculture secretary Diane Bothfeld says those concerns are likely premature.

Cat Viglienzoni talked to her about what changes the new bill will hold, and what is stalling its passage in Congress.

The new farm bill compromise is expected in early January, and after it's brought up, it could be passed in a couple weeks.
