Abstract The desire by many to redesign farm policy and reallocate the remaining farm bill baselinein a sequestration and deficit reduction environmentis driving much of the farm bill debate this year. Several high-profile congressional and Administration proposals for deficit reduction have specifically targeted agricultural programs with mandatory funding.

In this context, Congress faces difficult choices about how much total support to provide for agriculture, and how to allocate that support among competing constituencies.
