White House threatens to veto House ag spending bill
The bill passed out of the full Appropriations Committee in late May. Committee Chairman Hal Rogers (R-Ky.) said the bill invests in the people of this country, including the most vulnerable, and ensures the agriculture industry is “successful, productive and safe.”
If passed by the full House of Representatives, the bill will be conferenced with a Senate version of an agricultural spending bill, which is currently being considered by the Senate Appropriations Committee. While the House-passed version will never make it to the President's desk for his signature due to likely changes that would come from a conference committee, issuing the veto threat allows the White House the opportunity to officially register its opposition to provisions within the legislation.
