UPDATE: Senate mark-up of 2012 farm bill Thursday morning

The Senate Agriculture Committee mark-up of a draft 2012 farm bill  will begin on Thursday at 9:30 a.m. (central).

The mark-up was originally to begin Wednesday but, following criticism of the draft by Southern agriculture interests (see here and here), committee leadership announced a postponement. That postponement lasted less than 24 hours.

To listen in on the mark-up, check here.
