From CBPP ( Center on Budget and Policy Priorities): We expect the Senate to start with a procedural vote on the farm bill on Monday evening, which means the floor debate will start on Tuesday. Voting on amendments will likely run from Tuesday through Thursday afternoon, with a final vote on passage on Thursday afternoon if things go as expected. As we shared above, we are very concerned that amendments could be offered during the Senate floor debate to cut SNAP or make harmful changes that would take away food assistance from struggling families who need help. And if we lose on any Senate amendments that enact harmful policies already contained in the House farm bill, it will be much harder to undo the damage when the House and Senate are negotiating the final bill. The Senate floor debate will be very fluid, and things will likely happen with short notice. We will probably see a lot of amendments filed on the bill next week, but it will be hard to know in advance which of them
