Senate Continues Consideration of Farm Bill

From AILA;

This week the Senate will continue consideration of the Farm, Nutrition and Bioenergy Act of 2007 (H.R. 2419). Earlier in the week Senator Feinstein (D-CA) dropped plans to offer AgJOBS (S. 340) as an amendment to the farm bill. The California Democrat made her concession as Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) stated he would attempt to avoid non-germane amendments to the bill. While Senator Reid has expressed his desire to pass the farm bill before Congress recesses for Thanksgiving, President Bush has declared that he intends to veto the bill.

Despite this setback, Senator Feinstein has reiterated her commitment to moving AgJOBS this year, either by seeking time on the Senate floor or as an amendment on a viable legislative vehicle."
