Farm policy has tended to favor commodity crops like corn and wheat.

The bill has key provisions to help the many fruit, vegetable and dairy farmers in Washington State.

Farmers have worked on a one year extension since Congress could not pass a new farm bill last year.

DelBene hopes they can pass the bill by the end of June.
