House Passes Farm Bill Reauthorization, Sending Legislation to the President’s Desk

This evening, the House easily passed the Farm Bill reauthorization by a vote of 369-47, sending the bill to President Trump to sign into law. House Agriculture Chairman Mike Conaway (R-TX) told reporters that he has “all the confidence in the world he’ll [the President] sign it.”

The overwhelming bipartisan vote ends a divisive eight-month long fight over the reauthorization, largely based on disagreements over modifications to the SNAP program. “After a rocky start, I’m just proud to turn a partisan bill into a bipartisan bill,” said House Agriculture ranking member Collin Peterson (D-MN). “That’s the way Congress is supposed to work.”
