Ag Committee Chairmen Meet with President Trump

President Trump met with House and Senate Chairmen, Mike Conaway (R-TX) and Pat Roberts (R-KS), to discuss the upcoming farm bill. Conaway is in the process of formally whipping votes for the farm bill, which is expected to reach the House floor very soon.. Conaway may have an up-hill battle as all 215 Republican votes will be needed since Democrats have vowed to not support the bill due to concerns about proposed changes to SNAP. The deadline for filing amendments on the farm bill was 10 a.m. Friday. The list of 96 published amendments, plus the bill and committee report text, can be found here.
