The Congressional Budget Office ”regularly analyzes the federal government’s agricultural policies. The agency produces cost estimates for multiyear farm bills and other changes to agriculture programs. It also studies the budgetary and economic impacts of proposed changes to agricultural policies and related policies, such as ones promoting biofuels and affecting the allocation of water supplies.”

See CBO Agriculture page.

“Since its founding in 1974, the Congressional Budget Office has produced independent, nonpartisan, timely analysis of economic and budgetary issues to support the Congressional budget process. The agency’s long tradition of nonpartisanship is evident in each of the dozens of reports and hundreds of cost estimates its economists and policy analysts produce each year. CBO analyses do not make policy recommendations, and each report and cost estimate discloses our assumptions and methodologies. All CBO employees are appointed solely on the basis of professional competence, without regard to political affiliation.”
