Senate to vote on Farm Bill today
The Senate overwhelmingly voted 72-22 to invoke cloture on Monday (Feb. 3), ending floor debate and clearing the way for today’s (Feb. 4) vote on final passage of a Farm Bill.
The Senate reconvenes at 10 a.m. this morning, with a Farm Bill vote anticipated in the afternoon.
The House approved the bill, the conference report to accompany H.R.2642, last week, 251-166.
Once approved by the Senate, the bill heads to the President for his signature.
