Domenici diappointed with new farm bill for its approach to N.M. Dairy and agriculture interests

WASHINGTON – With Congress overturning a presidential veto, U.S. Senator Pete Domenici today said he is disappointed that a new Farm Bill will become law with provisions that work against New Mexico’s dairy and agriculture interests.

The Senate voted 80-14 to override President Bush’s veto of the Farm Bill (HR.2419, the Food, Conservation and Energy Act of 2008), a five-year $290 billion bill on federal agriculture and nutrition policies.
