Youth Assembly Webinar: An Introduction to the Farm Bill 2012

Less than a quarter of the funds spent through the current U.S. farm bill go to farm programs. Where does the rest of the money go? And what do rural residents need to know about the farm bill? This 45 minute webinar explores those questions with rural young people from across the country.
