Farm Bill message: thank you Senators
As local Congressionals travel from town to town campaigning for votes and trust throughout farm country this October, one vital piece of legislation follows them around like a bad smell. The farm bill.
While the U.S. House of Representatives was unable to pass a farm bill, the Senate succeeded. The full Senate passed its bipartisan $500 billion farm bill in June, which offered up more than $23 billion in cuts. Both Sen. Maria Cantwell and Sen. Patty Murray voted in support of the Senate version.
