The farm bill should hit the Senate floor the final week of October. The bill will still get done this year or very early in 2008 and there won't be a one-year extension. Lawmakers have woken up to the fact current prices will mean lower farm payments this year and an even smaller budget baseline if the bill isn't done before the baseline update in March 2008.
