Senate Agriculture Committee member Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kansas, voices his concerns as lawmakers begin mark up on the Farm Bill, officially known as the Agriculture Reform, Food, and Jobs Act of 2013, Tuesday, May 14, 2013, on Capitol Hill in Washington. This is the third year in a row that farm-state lawmakers have tried to push the bill through; though it passed the Senate, the House declined to take up the bill last year after conservatives in that chamber objected to the bill's cost and insisted on higher cuts to food stamps.
