U.S. House Passes Revised Farm Bill

After failing to pass a farm bill last month, House Republicans on Thursday narrowly passed a modified version of the bill that stripped-out funding authorization for food stamps and nutrition programs. The vote was 216-208, with all Democrats voting against it. Twelve Republicans also voted against the bill. Republican aides said the House will consider the food stamp funding authorization separately at another date.

Rep. Cynthia Lummis (R-WY)  said she was pleased to see the appropriately focused farm legislation pass the US House. She said this farm bill delivers for Wyoming’s farmers and ranchers and ensures a future for our country’s food producers in a fiscally responsible manner.  She added the bill ended agricultural payments to farmers who no longer farm, focusing instead on risk management, and consolidated duplicative programs to save money.
