Farm Bill Passes in House…Senate next?
Yesterday the (Food and) Farm Bill passed in the House and is poised to pass in the Senate today. As we mentioned last week, Bush is ready to veto but the numbers in the House vote suggest that they will easily be able to override his veto.
For good coverage, see:
the San Francisco Chronicle
Also, a great resource has continued to be the Community Food Security Coalition email updates (these guys actually have reason to be happy since some of the positive parts of the Bill that got bundled in are provisions for community food projects–good news!).
