NATIONAL -- U.S. Congressman Rodney Davis (R) will serve on a committee working on finalizing the farm bill. The most recent bill expired at the beginning of the month. Davis is the only freshman member of the House to serve on the committee.

Farmers say the new bill needs to be passed by the first of the year. Without it, we could pay higher prices for food like cheese, butter and milk.

ILLINOIS -- Even those who aren't government workers could soon feel the impact of the federal shutdown. A new farm bill didn't pass before then and it could mean sharply higher prices for milk, cheese and butter. A new bill must be signed into law by January 1, 2014. If not, milk prices could double up to $6.00/gallon.
