The Chairwoman and Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry, along with the Chairman and Ranking Member of the House Committee on Agriculture, asked about CBO’s efforts to provide budgetary analysis related to the reauthorization of the farm bill. This letter provides CBO’s response.
CBO has assigned additional analysts from throughout the agency to work on this year’s farm bill. CBO’s analysts have already provided more than 1,000 estimates. The agency expects to furnish hundreds more in the coming weeks and many more later in the legislative process.
