The U.S. Senate has passed a comprehensive Farm Bill for the first time in five years. The bipartisan bill was approved with over 60 yea votes but is expected to face a tougher road in the U.S. House of Representatives. House Speaker John Bohener urged his colleagues to bring their suggestions to the table as the congress prepares to consider the bill. He said,
"If you have ideas on how to make the bill better, bring them forward. Let's have the debate, and let's vote on them."
