Daniel Strauss reported on Friday at The Hill’s On the Money Blog that, “House Republicans will return to farm bill legislation this month, according to Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.).
“In a memo outlining the conference’s legislative agenda for July, Cantor said Republicans would revisit the farm bill — an issue that divided them last month and led to a rare failure of legislation on the House floor.
“‘Members should be prepared to act on a revised farm bill,’ Cantor said in the memo.”
The Hill update noted that, “Conservatives have pressed Cantor and other GOP leaders to break the farm bill in two by splitting the spending on agriculture from food stamps. It’s unclear from Cantor’s memo what form the ‘revised’ bill might take.”
