Food, conservation, and energy bill becomes law,

When it counts for passing laws that provide funding to modernize Food conservation policy. Along with provided sound principles in ways that make the United States strong. Congress and the Senate over rode a veto from George W. Bush to make the Food conservation, and energy bill law. Congress member Tom Harkin sent out details of the news in his latest newsletter release. The following message can be accessed at Tom Harkins website.

CONGRESS ENACTS FOOD, CONSERVATION AND ENERGY ACT OF 2008 OVER PRESIDENT’S VETO
It is with great pride that I note the new farm bill, The Food, Conservation and Energy Act – is now law. As Chairman of the House-Senate conference committee on the farm bill, I was honored to usher through a farm bill conference report on a strong, bipartisan basis, demonstrating support for core farm bill initiatives in farm income protection, conservation, energy, nutrition and rural development. This bill benefits every American and every Iowan – from our smallest towns to our biggest cities, urban and rural residents, farmers and non-farmers. The farm bill conference report passed the Senate by a vote of 81-15 and the House by 318-106.
