The Senate voted 72-22 to advance a measure to set U.S. agricultural policy, with a vote on final passage scheduled for tomorrow.
The measure would reduce spending by $16.6 billion over 10 years, with half of that coming from cuts to food stamps, according to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office.
The legislation is H.R. 2642.
