Shut Down Could Affect Grocery Prices

Could the stalemate in Washington mean higher grocery prices?
Could the stalemate in Washington mean higher grocery prices?

While in a shutdown, it's not likely Congress will pass a new farm bill and that could mean sharply higher prices for milk, cheese and butter.

But the threat is far away, not until the new year.

If a new bill isn't signed into law by January 1st, the U.S. Department of Agriculture will be forced to revert back to 1949 laws, forcing the government to pay more for dairy products, and that would drive up the cost for everyone.
