Key farm bill vote Thursday

DANIEL LOOKER 06/03/2013 @ 11:00pm Business Editor

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid announced late Tuesday that the Senate will hold a cloture vote on the farm bill Thursday morning, a key vote that would prevent any delays from filibustering. Senators will have until just before the vote to continue filing amendments to the bill.


The Senate won't be in session Wednesday, so that its members can attend the funeral in New York City of Senator Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ). Lautenberg was the last World War II veteran in the Senate. He died early Monday at age 89.


Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA), a member of the Senate's agriculture committee, said earlier on Tuesday that the funeral could push debate of farm bill amendments into early next week. But he believes a final vote on the farm bill is likely before next Tuesday.
