Abstract

The Agricultural Act of 2014 replaced some outmoded programs with new subsidies. It reauthorizes hundreds
of initiatives and programs, from nutrition assistance to export subsidies. The nutrition programs continue to use
most of the budget, while farm subsidies that focus on risk management gain new support.
