Senator Says Its Up To House To Move Farm Bill

Senator Says Its Up To House To Move Farm Bill

At a stop in Yankton Tuesday, South Dakota Senator John Thune says he’s hoping they’ll be able to complete a five year farm bill sometime this fall. One major hold up is that the House has yet to name conferees or even pass a nutrition bill.  Thune says the Senate is ready to move but the House is still trying to figure out how to proceed.

Thune says as far as getting the farm bill going, it’s now up to the House.

Earlier Senator Thad Cochran announced that 7 Democrats and 5 Republicans including himself have been named as Senate conferees.  Conferees from Midwest states include Tom Harkin of Iowa, Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota and John Hoeven of North Dakota.
