President Bush is threatening to veto the senate version of the new Farm Bill.
The senate version is the one Jeff Lyon at the Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation supports because it increases milk price supports for dairy farmers.
But it also includes one and a quarter billion dollars in grain subsidies and other programs such as conservation and nutrition. And it's the total cost, Lyon thinks, that has the President waving his veto pen.
Lyon also thinks the veto threat may just be a signal for the senate to start working on a bill that will be signed and Lyon believes the senate will start working in that direction.
Lyon says there's still a long way to go before Wisconsin farmers need to be worried about the Farm Bill.
