WASHINGTON (WLFI) - The U.S. Senate is set to vote on the "Farm Bill" this week and Indiana's U.S. senators are sounding off.
The Agriculture Reform, Food and Jobs Act would reduce the deficit by $23 billion.
The bill would reduce subsidies to farmers and increase funds for crop insurance.
U.S. Senator Dan Coats (R-Ind.) says switching the funding is more efficient.
Coats says Indiana has been a leader in working efficiently and the country is ready to follow.
"We need to be very conscious that we are in a tight fiscal situation here and everybody has to step up and do their part," Coats said. "Working with the farm bureau in Indiana, working with the farmers all across the state - they've done that."
U.S. Senator Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.) helped pass the bill out of the Senate Agriculture Committee.
The Senate could vote on the bill as early as Thursday.
