Senators back commodity cap in Farm Bill

Posted:
WASHINGTON, D.C. (KWWL) -

The US Senate voted to cap commodity programs in the 2012 Farm Bill.

It's an amendment Senator Chuck Grassley pushed for.

The amendment sets a hard cap of 75,000 dollars on marketing loan gains.

But the Farm Bill still has a long way to go.

There's more than 70 amendments left to go through.
