Goodlatte/Scott amendment introduced

You knew it was coming, and now it's official: U.S. Rep. Bob Goodlatte (D-Va.) and others introduced the Goodlatte/D. Scott/C. Collins/Moran/Duffy/Polis/Coffman/Meeks/Issa/DeGette/Sessions Amendment to the House version of the 2013 Farm Bill (H.R. 1947, the Federal Agriculture Reform and Risk Management (FARRM) Act of 2013). The amendment strikes the Dairy Market Stabilization Program (DMSP), part of the Dairy Security Act  included in the base text of the FARRM Act, replacing it with a stand-alone margin insurance program for dairy producers.
