The House this afternoon voted 316-108 to override the president’s veto of the bill and the Senate is expected to follow suit tomorrow. The Senate originally passed the bill by an overwhelming margin of 81 to 15. President Bush did veto the farm bill approved by Congress last week, but after an hour of debate, House members voted to override that veto. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says the override vote in the Senate will take place Thursday.
