All Eyes on the House Rules Committee as They Pave the Way for Floor Consideration of the 2018 Farm Bill

Tue, 15 May 2018 05:55:02 CDT

All Eyes on the House Rules Committee as They Pave the Way for Floor Consideration of the 2018 Farm Bill The process of getting U.S. House Floor debate on H.R.2, the Agriculture and Nutrition Act of 2018- otherwise known as the 2018 Farm Bill- continues with the focus today and tomorrow on the House Rules Committee. The Rules Committee is chaired by Texas lawmaker Pete Sessions- with the Vice Chair being Tom Cole of Oklahoma. They have taken the unusual approach of working on the Rule for floor debate on the Farm Bill in two parts- today- they will consider the Rule for General Debate of the Farm Bill and then on Wednesday- they will decide the details on amendments- how many to allow- the length of debate and other details.

That means the earliest that the debate on H.R. 2 can happen is Thursday.

Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays reviews the process- and where the Farm Bill process stands- you can hear his analysis by clicking on the LISTEN BAR below.

A total of 116 amendments are listed on the Rules Committee website- 16 of those are noted as being filed late- so it is likely they will be tossed unless House Ag Committee Chairman Mike Conaway asks that they be allowed- leaving 91 amendments that will be dealt with by the Rules Committee ahead of the floor debate.

Many of the measures would reduce Crop Insurance support or Title One subsidies. Others have to do with the SNAP program- wanting even tighter rules to be placed on able bodied adults who receive SNAP assistance.
