Farm Bill passes through committee

Posted: 05/15/13 08:21

U.S. Sen. Mike Johanns a former Secretary of Agriculture, voted against advancing out of committee a farm bill that he says relies on budget gimmicks and outdated policy. Senator Johanns believes our country needs a long-term, reform-minded farm bill, especially in the midst of a prolonged drought, and looks forward to opportunities to offer fixes during the amendment process. Despite his opposition, the bill passed in the committee by a vote of 15-5.
