Bipartisan Farm Bill Spells Savings And Changes To Subsidies
After more than two years of negotiations, lawmakers from the Senate and the House have agreed on a new, bipartisan farm bill.

The House is expected to vote on the deal on Wednesday. Robert Siegel discusses details of the bill with reporter Derek Wallbank of Bloomberg News.
