Congress voted thumbs up for the $867 billion FARM BILL with strong support from both parties.  In a 386-47 vote, the House on Wednesday approved the bill which allocates billions of dollars in subsidies to American farmers, legalizes hemp, bolsters farmers markets and rejects stricter limits on food stamps pushed by Republicans. President Trump is expected to sign the bill into law.

The Senate passed the legislation in an 87-to-13 vote yesterday.

Negotiators said they faced challenges to complete the bill from farmers and ranchers who have seen steep declines in commodities prices as a result of the trade dispute with China.
