Braley Asks House for Vote on Farm Bill
WASHINGTON (CBS 2/FOX 28) -- U.S. Rep. Bruce Braley (D-Iowa) is again asking to bring a bipartisan farm bill to the House floor for a vote.
At the end of this month, the current farm bill will expire and farm programs will revert to a 1949 version of the law.
Rep. Braley says lawmakers need to move past the political games and get serious about passing the bill. The Senate already passed its version of a farm bill earlier this summer.
Braley haD even gone as far as asking House Speaker John Boehner to postpone the August recess until a farm bill was voted on.
