House considers Farm Bill on the floor

On the floor this morning, U.S. House of Representatives is considering the House-Senate conference report on the new Farm Bill, which the White House has threatened to veto because of its bloated $300 billion cost and lack of reform. However, the bill’s proponents say they will have the two-thirds majority needed to override a Presidential veto.

Currently, on C-Span, Rep. Jeff Flake is objecting to the rules which don’t allow time for opponents of the report to debate the bill.
