House expected to vote on farm bill today

House agriculture leaders said they expect the House to vote this afternoon to move the farm bill, H.R. 2 (115), to a conference committee. Members of the conference committee will also be named.

Lawmakers speculated that a total of 20 members from the House and Senate could form the committee, and the House may get between seven and nine spots.

The Senate is anticipated to vote on its own motion to proceed to conference soon after.
