U.S. Senate aims to finish bipartisan farm bill in June

WASHINGTON, May 15 (Reuters) - Democratic Senator Amy
Klobuchar said on Tuesday that the U.S. Senate expects to finish
a bipartisan farm bill sometime in June.

The U.S. House of Representatives is slated to vote this
week on a bill supported only by Republicans due to last-minute
changes to nutrition assistance programs. The bill prepared by
the Senate Committee on Agriculture, of which Klobuchar is a
member, is expected to have support from both parties, she said.
Both chambers are controlled by Republicans.

"I know that the House Farm Bill has become very partisan,
we don't see a sign of that in the Senate," Klobuchar told
reporters.
