The House today passed the farm bill on a revote after the bill failed to gain enough votes in May.

Today’s vote was 213 to 211, with 20 Republicans joining all Democrats in voting against it.

The vote was a victory for House Agriculture Committee Chairman Michael Conaway, R-Texas, against both Democrats who objected to the provisions to change the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and the conservative Heritage Foundation and groups led by the Koch brothers.
