I don’t believe in reinventing the wheel. If the information is already out there then use it and direct other folks to it.
Past Postings on the issue:
1) Senate, most folks know that Sen. Vitter wiggled a bad amendment into S-954 and the Senate passed it. Heck we all know a Farm Bill update needs to happen, but not with Vitter trickery affecting certain sex offenders.
Unfortunately, at this point we cannot do anything about what Vitter did because S-954 passed and was sent to the House for their approval. It sits there with no House action, but worse yet, the bad Vitter amendment is available to all House members to read.
2) House, well they have their own version of a Farm Bill HR-3102
OK, now other House Reps, not to be outdone, have since introduced Farm Bills (HR-2498 and HR-2642) and guess what is tucked into those bills. Right, some version of the bad Vitter amendment.
