The farm bill might win approval from U.S. lawmakers if it is included in a larger piece of legislation known as the fiscal cliff bill, TheHill.com’s On The Money blog reported.

As written in On The Money:

"House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) caused a stir on Thursday when he seemed to indicate that a standalone farm bill would come to the House floor after the Nov. 6 election. But lobbyists said the remarks mean, at best, that a modified farm bill could be wrapped into a lame-duck bill dealing with expiring tax cuts and automatic spending cuts."

Read reaction from several lobbyists and learn how Republicans and Democrats view the farm bill in the complete On The Money report.
