House fails to pass farm bill (06/23/2013)
From: Doug Peterson

Minnesota Farmers Union President

Minnesota Farmers Union disappointed the United States House of Representative did not pass the Federal Agriculture Reform and Risk Management (FARMM) Act on a vote of 195-234.

Minnesota Farmers Union is disappointed that the House failed family farmers and consumers by not passing a farm bill. I would like to thank Representatives Peterson, Kline, Walz, and Paulsen for their support of rural Minnesota and the consumers our hard-working family farmers feed. MFU will continue to work hard for the interests of family farmers and push for the necessary changes in the legislation to get this farm bill passed in the House.

The United States Senate passed their version of the farm bill on June 10, 2013. Both Senator Klobuchar and Senator Franken supported the legislation. Extensions to some farm bill provisions were made at the end of 2012, which expire September 30, 2013.
