In a conference call with reporters today, US Senator Roy Blunt of Missouri discussed the progress of the federal Farm Bill. Blunt says the last time the bill was up for debate six years ago, lawmakers took almost three weeks to debate the bill’s amendments before voting on the measure as a whole. This time around, he says, lawmakers are trying to narrow the timeframe in which they debate amendments to the bill from weeks to a “handful of days”. KSMU’s Rebekah Clark has this report.
