The Coburn amendment to H.R.2112, the Fiscal Year 2012 minibus appropriations bill combining Agriculture, Commerce-Justice-Science and the Transportation-HUD, Appropriations Bill, would prohibit direct payments to individuals/legal entities with AGI in excess of $1,000,000.  Currently, a farmer with an AGI of less than $1,250,000 can receive taxpayer-funded farm payments.
