that come from agriculture. i want to thank senator roberts. the overall dollars that we been able to set some priorities and strength in some areas and make sure we have a strong crop title. be able to address issues and streamline and make programs more effective and be able to strengthen them. with the nutrition title. to be able to show the work. given a time when agriculture has a lot of uncertainty. we had strengthened the trade titles.

about considering some amendments on the floor. about the amendment process. we stand united with regards to the situation exactly like we did today. we will consider both of our things and work as a team. as he went title, title i think an example of that is how we handle the amendments in the committee.
as of last night. we were able to come together with the committee to have a manager package and then people felt that their issues and concerns had been addressed and were willing to move forward with the balance package that we have. hopefully we will be able to move this quickly. can you give us any guidance i bring in the bill up on the floor. you're leaving june 29 doesn't give you too much time. are any other bills interfering. he wants a farm bill before the fourth of july.
i take him at his word. the 20 to one vote. we will just move when he says there is an opportunity to move. how much time do you think it will take on the floor. we will take as much time as we need to take. i think you can see with what happened here today we don't need amendments that are contrary to the project that we've artie passed.
would like to change policy. i expect that we will have the same amendments as before. the house is considering the legislation. i know that they are working hard to produce something. it's very unfortunate. as for the house it wants to go. will just head to see and hope that at least some version of the farm bill will pass.
