FILE - In this Feb 4, 2014 file photo, Senate Agriculture Committee Chair Sen. Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich., is seen during a news conference on Capitol Hill in Washington, Tuesday, Feb. 4, 2014, after Congress gave its final approval to a sweeping five-year farm bill. When President Barack Obama comes to East Lansing on Friday to sign the Farm Bill, it will put attention on how research schools such as Michigan State University will be one of the big beneficiaries of the nearly $100 billion-a-year measure — even if the millions it represents is comparatively small. And scientists are breathing a sigh of relief that funding will continue flowing, along with money for new efforts, after years of political wrangling. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)
