Senate Passes Corrected Farm Bill

On June 5, the Senate passed, 77-15, the Food and Energy Security Act, also known as the Farm Bill (H.R. 6124). On May 21, the House voted to override President Bush’s veto of the original version of the Farm Bill (H.R. 2419). However, a clerical error omitted one of the bill’s titles and forced the House to vote again on the legislation in its entirety (H.R. 6124) the same day (see The Source, 5/23/08). The president is expected to veto the measure.
