Johanns Threatens Farm Bill Veto

Randall Weiseman General

Agriculture Secretary Mike Johanns said Wednesday he would recommend that the president veto the farm bill currently being considered in the House if it is approved in its present form by Congress.

Johanns said President Bush’s entire team of advisers would recommend that he veto the House bill if it is approved because it did not do enough to reform federal farm policy and would continue to allow the wealthy to receive farm subsidies.

Here is the first part of Johanns’ press conference.
