Obama will sign Farm Bill at Michigan State University

On Friday, February 7, 2014 President Obama will sign the Farm Bill at MSU.

The Farm Bill has already been passed by Congress and will change the subsidy system that has been in place for 80 years. Senate Agriculture Committee Chairperson, Debbie Stabenow, supports it because she said it is "a major bipartisan jobs bill that makes sure that 16 million people who work in agriculture... have the support that they need."

Michigan State University was chartered under state law in 1855 to become the Agriculture College of the State of Michigan. At the time, both U-M and EMU were vying for this status, but instead Governor Kinsley S. Bingham designated 14,000 acres of land to start a new college. Later, President Abraham Lincoln, sighed the Morrill Act of 1862, which granted higher education institutions federally funded land for development.
