Senate Approves FY10 Agriculture Spending Bill
The Senate approved their Agriculture spending bill yesterday – the fourth fiscal 2010 spending bill passed by the Senate. Informal work to begin reconciling the four spending bills passed by both chambers is expected to occur over the August break so that conference reports can be considered in September. Before leaving last week for its recess, the House reached its goal of passing all 12 spending bills.
