The Senate began considering a $955 billion five-year farm bill this week. It's unclear if the Senate can complete work on the bill this week.

S. 954 would cut more than $23 billion from current spending levels over 10 years. It includes $4 billion worth of cuts to food stamps, which has led to some Democratic opposition.
Last year’s farm bill passed on a bipartisan 64-35 vote, but the House failed to take up their own farm bill.
This year the House has a $940 billion farm bill that cuts spending by $39.7 billion over 10 years — $20.5 billion are cuts to food stamps. The House bill likely won’t get a floor vote until June.
The White House has said it supports the Senate farm bill.
