House Begins Farm Bill Debate; 103 Amendments on Tap

House legislators began debating the farm bill on Tuesday afternoon. The House Rules Committee has determined that 103 amendments to the bill out of 225 submitted will be considered. Debate is expected to continue today and Thursday. Although Republican leaders in the House continue to indicate that they anticipate approval of the farm bill before the House adjourns at 3:00 p.m. on Thursday, some pundits in Washington, D.C., think a vote next week is more likely.
