2013 Farm Bill Progress

June 06, 2013

The Senate vote for cloture on the 2013 Farm Bill passed 75-22 today, June 6, 2013, while the House Ag leadership is working to find sufficient votes for passage of the Farm Bill sometime in June 2013.  The Senate will discuss a motion to proceed to the Immigration Bill tomorrow, June 7, 2013.  Cloture for the Farm Bill helped stop a long debate process over the many amendments that have been filed.  The Senate has agreed to do the final vote on the 2013 Farm Bill Monday at 5:30 pm EST.  The Senate Agriculture Committee leadership is still negotiating which amendments will be addressed before the final vote of the Farm Bill; some 240 amendments remain filed.
