It was the news we have been waiting for.
The US Senate Passed the Farm bill by a vote of 86-11 on Thursday.
Senate Ag Committee Chairman Pat Roberts (R-KS) commended the efforts of everyone who makes a bill like this possible.
Ranking Member Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) says the Senate showed bi-partisanship works.
Stabenow says the Senate never lost sight of what was most important: American farmers.
The Farm bill now moves into conference committee with the House of Representatives.
