The Senate still has not been able to move a disaster aid bill covering weather events from two years ago. Meanwhile, pressure is building to provide relief for farmers and ranchers hit by heavy snows, flooding and winds this spring. Pro Farmer Washington Analyst Jim Wiesmeyer says a down payment on that aid will come soon in a comprehensive disaster bill. Wiesmeyer and Farm Journal News Director John Herath also cover the political reaction to the cancellation of World Pork Expo over African Swine Fever concerns and offer up the latest details of what appears to be an ever closer China trade deal of this week's DC Signal to Noise Podcast.
