(AP) — This May 15, 2013 file photo shows stacks of paperwork awaiting members of the House Agriculture Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington, as it meets to consider proposals to the 2013 Farm Bill.
The House’s broad rejection on June 19, 2013, of a massive farm bill could signal a shift in the way Congress views agriculture policy. Farm issues once had enormous clout on Capitol Hill, but the healthy agriculture economy and an increased interest in cutting spending have worked against farm-state lawmakers who are trying to push a farm bill through for the third year in a row.
