Only weeks remain to pass a 2012 farm bill before Congress leaves for the holidays.
Dale Thorenson is a lobbyist for the National Sunflower Association in Washington D.C.
Thorenson says currently the House Ag Committee and Senate Ag Committee are working to develop a bill that could contain 30 billion dollars worth of cuts.
Thorenson says the money cut from the farm bill would be used to help pay for the "fiscal cliff."

Lobbyist) Talking with staff and visiting with them the past few days that they are going to try and put together a package that may be some transition time for this coming year because the Department of Agriculture would have some trouble putting a bill in place this quickly for 2012, but that would also then would have a bill that would be another 4 years.
It's been 66 days since the 2008 Farm Bill expired.
