The Farm Bill Passes Through the House

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON, D.C. -

After a lot of deliberation, the Farm Bill has just cleared the House.

The Farm Bill compensates rural counties for federal land they can't tax.

Lawmakers pushed hard to get this bill back in the budget, because for many rural communities the funding is essential for basic services such as police, fire protection and road maintenance.

Now that its through the House, we are a step closer to getting a 1 year extension on this federal program. Now its all up to the Senate for this to move forward.
