The 2014 Farm Bill is one step closer to completion, after the U.S. Senate approved the 949-page legislative bill Feb. 4 by a vote of 68 to 32. This follows approval Jan. 29 by the House of Representatives.

According to the National Grange, the bill saves nearly $23 billion over a 10-year period.

The one dividing factor that delayed passage was the reduction in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, also known as “Food Stamps.” The House originally planned to cut $39 billion, while the Senate proposed $4 billion. In the compromised version by Farm Bill conferees, $8.6 billion was cut from this program.

Other cuts also were made in farm programs. More provisions will be addressed in the future. The bill still requires the signature of the president to become final.
