Farm Support Programs and World Trade Commitments

Description:

Congress is now debating reauthorization of omnibus farm legislation, as most
commodityprice support provisions expire in 2002. This report discusses this debate, specifically aspects relating to commitments that the U.S. has as a World Trade Organization (WTO) member. Because of the interrelationships
between trade and domestic support policies, lawmakers are interested in what the
Agreement on Agriculture stipulates with regard to domestic supports, and how not
only the United States but also other countries are meeting their Agreement
commitments.
