Senate Passes Farm Bill

(June 11, 2013)  Last night, the U.S. Senate voted to pass the Farm Bill, S.954.   Having failed to reach an agreement on what amendments to debate, the Senators left over 200 amendments on the table without a vote. None of the amendments supported by FARFA were voted on.

The next step will be for the House of Representatives to take up its version of the Farm Bill.  This could happen as early as next week.  Stay tuned for news on what amendments are introduced and ways to get involved.
