Farm Bill signed into law|
President Barack Obama signed the new farm bill into law Friday at Michigan State University, but thatís not all he did. He also talked about a new initiative that he hopes will help boost exports. Itís the "Made in Rural America" initiativeóa program to connect rural businesses, including farming operations, with federal resources that can help sell their products and services abroad. The program's creation comes as U.S. farmers are sending more products overseas - a record $140.9 billion in the last fiscal year.
