House Ag Spending Bill Delayed
June 13, 2014

The U.S. House of Representatives spent several hours Wednesday debating a $142 billion spending bill for the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Food and Drug Administration for fiscal year 2015, adjourning without voting on the measure.

With the defeat of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (Va.) in his primary this week, House Republican leadership has delayed further action on the bill until later this summer. June 19 has been set as the election date for a new House Majority Leader since Cantor resigned the position effective July 31.
