Farm Bill Amendments Likely To Surface

Farm Bill Amendments Likely To Surface

The Senate’s passage of the farm bill this week means it’s now up to the House to pass their own measure. Minnesota Farmers Union President Doug Peterson says one of the battles will be over nutrition program or SNAP cuts.

Peterson says House Speaker John Boehner has promised an open process when the House debates the farm bill so several amendments are likely to surface. He says because the Senate moved so quickly with their farm bill it puts more heat on the House to follow suit.

He says the disaster provision alone in the farm bill is enough reason for Congress to pass a farm bill. He says many areas of the country have faced excessive moisture this year after last year’s drought which has made things tough in farm country.
