Senate majority leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said last week that he would like the chamber to take up a farm bill next month, meaning the agriculture committee would have to mark-up immediately after Congress returns from a planned one-week recess on Monday, May 6.  
House agriculture committee chairman Frank Lucas (R-Okla.) has said his panel plans to mark up their bill on Wednesday, May 15, although neither the senate nor house agriculture committees have made formal announcements on mark-up timing. 
Current farm policy in place will expire the last day of September.
