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

The Senate Agriculture Committee mark-up of a draft 2012 farm bill  [2] 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 [3] and here [4]), committee leadership announced a postponement. That postponement lasted less than 24 hours.
