It is now headed to the Senate later this week.

 

U.S. Congressman Greg Walden of Oregon supported the plan.

 

"With House passage of a five year Farm Bill, we finally have some certainty out on the farm.  I spent my early years on a cherry orchard in the Dalles, so I know how important it is to provide our farmers and ranchers with that certainty.  This reform minded legislation ensures an adequate safety net for producers, while also reducing spending by 16 billion dollars. We reduce fraud in the food stamp program and we increase assistance for food banks."

 

The Farm Bill makes a small cut in food stamps and preserves most crop subsidies.

 

The bill is expected to save about 16 billion over the next ten years.
