The Senate Ag Committee passed a bipartisan farm bill in under three-hours Wednesday, adding just a handful of amendments. The 20-1 vote was in stark contrast to the purely partisan effort in the House Ag Committee. In a joint statement, Committee leaders Pat Roberts and Debbie Stabenow said the bipartisan farm bill process “is a reminder of how things should work in Washington,” Here is Senate Ag Chair Pat Roberts.
And top Senate Ag Democrat Debbie Stabenow.
Adding to that certainty, Senate GOP leader and Ag member Mitch McConnell of Kentucky told the Committee the Senate will consider the farm bill before the July Fourth recess.
