MANCHESTER (KWWL) -

Rep. Bruce Braley will be in Manchester and Strawberry Point Tuesday to talk to farmers about the 2012 Farm Bill.

Braley will meet with farmers at Manchester City Hall at 9 a.m. and at Strawberry Point Library at 3:15 p.m.

The Farm Bill proposal has passed through a senate committee and is now ready for debate on the U.S. Senate floor.

The bill, also known as the Agriculture Reform, Food and Jobs Act of 2012, would end direct payments, streamline and consolidate programs, and reduce the deficit by $23 billion.
