House plans ’18 Farm Bill vote this week

The Farm Bill is a top priority in the U.S. House of Representatives this week.  Ag Committee Chairman Michael Conaway worked all weekend trying to round up support from other Republicans.

The House Rules Committee will meet Tuesday afternoon to determine debate rules for the Farm Bill.  The Committee will decide Wednesday which amendments will be debated on the House floor, most likely Thursday.

There are 103 proposed amendments, and only two Democrats are offering amendments, as Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi urges her party to oppose the entire bill for its proposed changes to the SNAP nutrition assistance program.
