AGRIBUSINESS: More Than 200 Farm Bill Amendments Filed In House
According to a schedule released by House Majority Leader Eric Cantor – the U.S. House will not hold any votes on Friday this week.The last vote is slated for three o’clock Eastern Thursday afternoon.
No farm bill votes were taken Monday – as the House Rules Committee had not yet set the rule on the farm bill. House Ag Committee Chair Frank Lucas and Ranking Member Collin Peterson are expected to ask for a rule that allows debate on all subjects House members want to discuss – but limits the number of amendments on each subject.
The Rules Committee will meet Tuesday to issue a rule on how farm bill amendments will be handled on the House floor.
