The House of Representatives passed the Farm Bill Wednesday by a vote of 251 to 166. The Senate is expected to take up the bill later this week.

Negotiators from the House and Senate spent several weeks working out their differences on issues in the legislation, including cuts to food stamps, income caps on farm subsidies, and a price support program for dairy farmers. The bill is expected to save about $16.6 billion over the next 10 years.

Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said the passage of the farm bill by the house “takes us one step closer to a more optimistic future for rural America.” He said it also creates a strong commitment to production agriculture.
