June 2012

On June 21, 2012, the U.S. Senate voted 64-35 to pass the Farm Bill, as amended. Earlier in the week, on June 18, 2012, the U.S. Senate had reached a unanimous-consent-time agreement providing that certain amendments would be considered beginning on June 19, 2012. The bill passed through the Senate quickly, as the Senate did not vote to proceed to consideration of the Farm Bill until June 7, 2012. The House Committee on Agriculture has not yet marked up its version of the bill.
