Farm Bill: Process, Budget –Lame Duck Issues
An update posted on Saturday at The Grand Forks Herald Online reported that, “U.S. Rep. Rick Berg, R-N.D., told a business roundtable meeting in Grand Forks Friday that he expects the farm bill to come to a vote in the current Congress.
“Speaker of the House John Boehner, R-Ohio, ‘made a commitment to bring the farm bill up before the end of the year,’ Berg said. ‘I take him at his word.’
“The bill has a good chance of passing after the November election when political pressures holding up the bill are gone, he said.”
