The House on Wednesday passed an $867 billion farm bill to help those in the agricultural industry, sending the legislation to President Trump for a signature.
The measure easily passed the lower chamber by a 369-47 vote.

The legislation, which passed the Senate in an 87-13 vote on Tuesday, expands farm subsidies and includes language legalizing hemp production.
It also provides funding for farmers markets and programs for organic farmers as well as authorizes funding for nutrition programs over the next five years.
At a time when America’s farmers and ranchers face steep challenges, this #FarmBill delivers certainty, expands access to broadband, better manages our forests, and makes important progress toward alleviating poverty. I look forward to sending this to the president’s desk. pic.twitter.com/Wk6cezZkJI
