The U.S. House of Representatives will take a second floor vote on H.R. 2, the Agriculture and Nutrition Act of 2018 (Farm Bill) as early as this afternoon (Thursday, June 21).
The House Farm Bill, sponsored by Rep. Michael Conaway, failed last month, largely due to the Freedom Caucus demanding to first vote on immigration bills.
The House measure promises greater job training opportunities for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program recipients. Democrats argue that the measure is poorly designed and would drive 2 million people off of the program.
