farm bill

Senate Democrats and Republicans were unable to finalize an agreement on floor amendments to the $955 billion farm bill this week, leaving the work to be hashed out at the last minute.

“We’re still working with the minority for a time agreement and we’ll have a clearer sense then on which amendments will be called up probably by Monday afternoon or evening,” a Democratic aide said late Friday.

“All of this is still in the works,” a GOP aide emailed.

Agriculture Chairwoman Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.) and Ranking member Thad Cochran (R-Miss.) are hoping to limit amendments to get the farm bill passed by the full Senate by the end of the coming week.
