Previously the farm economic safety net was primarily based on direct payments that were not tied to yields or market prices. If you remember back to the federal legislative debates when the Farm Bill was being designed in 2013, the primary issue driving the legislative process was budget reduction. Therefore the new 2014 Farm Bill commodity programs, which are a significant departure from past legislation, are designed to provide farmers with an effective safety net while also reducing federal budget expenditures.
