WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The full Senate will consider the farm bill beginning later today. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has set aside two weeks for farm bill debate, but it is unclear if all that time ultimately will be used for the farm legislation.

Former Senate Agriculture Committee Chair Richard Lugar (R-Ind.) has vowed to force the Senate to consider his plan to revamp agriculture assistance, but he has acknowledged he does not expect his alternative farm bill to garner enough votes to pass.

A Gannett News Service article at www.courier-journal.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20071105/NEWS02/711050416>/> about Lugar's proposal notes he discussed it at a news conference organized by the Environmental Working Group last week.
