I'm pleased to pass along the following announcement from the National Agricultural Law Center at the University of Arkansas:
It is with great pride that the National Agricultural Law Center announces the publication of an ambitious study of past and present Farm Bills entitled, Summary and Evolution of U.S. Farm Bill Commodity Titles, 1985 to 2002, by Brandon Willis, Center Graduate Assistant for the 2005-06 academic year and now Legislative Assistant for Agriculture to Senator Max Baucus, with guidance from Doug O'Brien, Senior Staff Attorney. The study charts the evolution of the primary title of the farm bill since 1985. It also provides links to more detailed explanations of the Commodity Title programs and to the statutory text. This project builds on previous efforts by the Center to create a dynamic source for Farm Bill research and information, particularly Summary and Evolution of U.S. Farm Bill Conservation Titles by Doug O'Brien and the digitalization of formerly electronically unavailable Farm Bills, a cooperative agreement project with USDA's National Agricultural Library.
These resources and many more are available on the Farm Bill page of the Center Web site at http://www.nationalaglawcenter.org/farmbills.
