Mr. Speaker, let House vote on farm bill
The U.S. Senate passed a new, five-year farm bill by a vote of 64-35.
The House Agriculture Committee passed a new, five-year farm bill by a vote of 35-11.
Both votes showed bipartisan supermajorities in favor. That suggests broad support among the American people for the overall direction that the farm bills embrace.
And that, in turn, means the House leaders should let their committee-approved bill come to the House floor for a vote.
