Klobuchar Thinks Congress Will Pass Farm Bill

Klobuchar Thinks Congress Will Pass Farm Bill

Sen. Amy Klobuchar says she's optimistic that Congress will pass a farm bill this year.

The Minnesota Democrat played an active role in trying to break the political stalemate that led to the federal government shutdown. Now she's in a House-Senate conference committee that will try to craft a compromise five-year farm bill.

Despite deep divisions between the House and Senate on farm-bill issues such as food stamps, Klobuchar told reporters Friday she thinks they'll find a solution.

She says that's because Americans have made it clear they're angry with gridlock in Washington and want Congress to get things done.

Two other Minnesotans are also on the conference committee: Democratic U.S. Reps. Collin Peterson and Tim Walz.

Klobuchar says the conference committee will meet for the first time October 28.
