The U.S. Senate has rejected two of Senator Judd Gregg’s proposed changes to the $286 billion farm bill.

Gregg wanted to cut a new $15 million subsidy for asparagus growers and a stress assistance program for farmers, but the Senate rejected both of his suggested cuts last night.

Gregg says the bill is full of similar programs that he would like to cut and he wanted to make at statement on at least one.
