Iowa Senator to Vote No on Farm Bill

grassley-1-31Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) announced last week that he intends to vote against the farm bill conference report passed by the House.

In a floor speech on Thursday, January 30, Sen. Grassley explained why he opposed the Agricultural Act of 2014. “I strongly support the business of agriculture….But if I were to vote yes on this bill, it would be an endorsement of the egregious manipulation of my payment limit reforms behind closed doors. I cannot in good conscience do that. Therefore, I will oppose to Agricultural Act of 2014.” Sen. Chuck Grassley floor speech
