On Friday, House Ag Chair G.T. Thompson released the House farm bill draft, anticipating a markup this Thursday. Senior Democrats are crafting amendments to strip out climate and nutrition pieces that have become red lines.

Some of the strongest opposition to the House bill comes from anti-hunger groups and Democrats opposed to limiting the Thrifty Food Plan, which serves as the basis for SNAP.

Climate provisions provide another source of controversy that needs to be worked out. The House bill seeks to remove the strict climate guardrails around approximately $14 billion in the IRA’s conservation funding and incorporate it into the farm bill for future years. Many Democrats and climate advocates claim the guardrails are necessary to combat climate change.

These differences could set up a political showdown in the coming days.
