Senate requests conference on Farm bill

By consent, the Senate proceeded to the consideration of Calendar #136, H.R.2642, all after the enacting clause was stricken and the text of S.954, Agriculture Reform, Food, and Jobs Act of 2013, as passed by the Senate, was inserted in lieu thereof. H.R.2642, as amended, was read a third time and passed. The Senate insists on its amendment and requests a conference with the House on the disagreeing votes of the two Houses. The Chair is authorized to appoint conferees with a ratio of 7:5 on the part of the Senate.
