Boehner to support farm bill

House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, said today he will support the farm bill, Politico reported.

Boehner has said he has problems with the dairy program, but today said that without a new bill “we get no changes in the farm program, no changes in the nutrition program.”

Boehner made the statement when he emerged from a House Republican Conference at which House Agriculture Committee Chairman Frank Lucas, R-Okla., was scheduled to speak on the bill.
