The Food, Conservation and Energy Act of 2008, P.L. 110-246, was passed on June 18th 2008, over the veto of President George W. Bush. Despite protracted debate, the FCEA represents an evolutionary change in farm legislation relative to previous so called Farm Bills. The FCEA consists of fifteen titles: (1) commodity programs, (2) conservation, (3) trade, (4) nutrition, (5) credit, (6) rural development, (7) research and related matters, (8) forestry, (9) energy, (10) horticulture and organic agriculture, (11) livestock, (12) crop insurance and disaster assistance, (13) commodity futures, (14) miscellaneous programs, and (15) trade and tax provisions. This overview document will examine the programs under Title II: Conservation of the 2008 Farm Bill, representing some 11% of anticipated expenditures.
