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."
