Farm Subsidies

Featured in Top Stories

President Obama’s 2013 budget for the U.S. Department of Agriculture proposes cuts of $700 million to farm subsidies. Over the next ten years the budget would trim $32 billion out of spending for direct payments and crop insurance coverage. It's a spending plan that puts a pair of Oklahomans at odds over how to reduce the deficit while maintaining the nation's food supply.

State of the State React

Featured in Top Stories

With the beginning of the 2012 legislative session, Governor Mary Fallin is putting the emphasis squarely on tax cuts and reshaping the state's tax code. As expected, democrats have serious reservations about some aspects of the governor's plan. And although her bold plan has many supporters, there are indications a number of the Governor's fellow republicans would also prefer a more cautious approach.
