Senate Approves Farm Bill

WASHINGTON -- Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) issued the following statement on Senate passage this afternoon of the farm bill by a vote of 79 to 14: While not perfect, the Senate version of farm bill is an important step forward. The bill is a win for dairy farmers who got an enhanced MILC program. It was also a win for nutrition programs, for bio-energy and for conservation. I look forward to continuing to work with Senator Leahy and Congressman Welch to make sure the final bill is as strong we can make it.
