Senate coalition calls for farm bill inclusion

A bipartisan coalition of senators wrote Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., that they should include a farm bill “in any end of the year legislation.”

The letter, noting that the bill would provide $23 billion over 10 years for deficit reduction, was distributed by Sen. Tim Johnson, D-S.D.
