Farmers across the nation are hoping a new year will finally bring a new farm bill.
Georgia congressman Austin Scott says he believes lawmakers in Washington will pass a farm bill soon.
Scott serves on the conference committee that is working out differences in the House and Senate versions.
He warns the final bill will have some spending cuts.
"There are going to be some significant cuts in it. We just don't have as much money as we have had in the best. We have to bring these budgets down to meet with where the revenues are."
Both parties in Congress hope to have a farm bill up for a vote by the end of this month.
