"The annual Agriculture appropriations bill provides funding for all of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) except the Forest Service, plus the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and, in even-numbered fiscal years, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC). The FY2014 Agriculture and Related Agencies appropriations bill was included as Division A of the FY2014 Consolidated Appropriations Act, an omnibus appropriation that was enacted on January 17, 2014 (P.L. [Public Law] 113-76). It provides $20.880 billion of discretionary funding for agricultural and related programs. This is $1.165 billion (+5.9%) more than the post-sequestration amount for FY2013. The appropriation also carries mandatory spending totaling $124.6 billion, primarily for nutrition assistance, crop insurance, and farm commodity programs, but these generally are determined by authorizing legislation such as the farm bill. The total Agriculture appropriation with discretionary and mandatory authority is $145 billion in FY2014."
