House Passes Smaller Version Of Farm Bill

Posted: 12 July, 2013

WASHINGTON (AP) – The House has passed a scaled-down version of a massive farm bill, putting off a fight over food stamp spending. The GOP leaders scrambled to get the bill to the floor Thursday and gather enough votes this week after making a decision to drop a politically sensitive food stamp section of the bill and pass legislation that contained only farm programs. The plan faced opposition from Democrats, farm groups and conservative groups.
