The Senate is in this week to continue the Lame Duck session.  While there was an agreement on the Farm Bill reached we are still waiting on a report from the Congressional Budget Office to make sure that it complies with funding needs.  The timetable on a new Farm Bill was also pushed down the road a bit with the 2 week Continuing Resolution to fund the government through December 21st.


The House of Representatives is also in this week from Monday 12/10 - Thursday 12/13.  As mentioned above, once the report form the CBO is in hand the House will be the first to vote on the new Farm Bill before it goes across the Hill to the Senate and then on to (fingers crossed) the President's desk, which must happen by the end of next week.
