Reid reintroduces Farm Bill

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has introduced a series of “top priority bills” in the Senate today including the Farm Bill. The Agriculture Reform, Food and Jobs Act (S.2340) cleared the Senate with overwhelming, bipartisan support on June 21, 2012.

Senate Ag Committee Chairwoman Debbie Stabenow praised Reid’s commitment to getting a five-year farm bill done.  Stabenow has said she is committed to convening a Committee mark up as soon as possible, to produce an updated version of the Farm Bill, which could then be substituted for Majority Leader Reid’s placeholder bill.
