Farm Bill Stuck in House of Representatives Until After November

On Thursday, House speaker John Boehner explained in no uncertain terms that there will not be a farm bill finalized before the old farm bill expires on  September 30.  “We will deal with the Farm Bill after the election,” said Boehner during Thursday’s press meeting.

“The current situation that we face is that we’ve got people who believe that there’s not enough reform in the bill that came out of the committee, we’ve got others who believe that there’s too much reform in the bill that came out of committee. In our opinion, leaving less than 218 votes to pass either an extension or the entire farm bill.”

All of Montana’s representatives have been pushing to get the new farm bill  finalized as both the Senate and the House met for one last week before the farm bill comes to an end. Montana Senator Max Baucus presented his thoughts on the issue to the Senate on Wednesday.
