ABSTRACT

Agriculture and Related Agencies: FY2007 Appropriations [Updated July 6, 2006]   [open pdf - 280KB]

"The Agriculture and Related Agencies appropriations bill includes all of USDA (except the Forest Service), plus the Food and Drug Administration and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission. On June 22, 2006, the Senate Appropriations Committee reported the FY2007 agriculture appropriations bill (H.R. 5384, S.Rept. 109-266). The full House passed its version on May 23, 2006. […] The House bill would allow prescription drug importation, and the Senate bill would facilitate travel to Cuba for selling licensed agricultural and medical goods. Both provisions have drawn veto threats from the White House in previous years. […] Both bills reject an Administration proposal to terminate the Commodity Supplemental Food Program. Moreover, the House bill would provide $25 million of discretionary funds to expand a fresh fruit and vegetable program to school in all states, while the Senate bill would add $9 million in discretionary funds to a $9 million mandatory pool. This report will be updated as events warrant."
