The U.S. Senate on Thursday passed a sweeping farm bill without the food stamps changes approved by the House of Representatives earlier this month.
The Senate approved the bipartisan measure by a 86-11 vote. The House bill passed with only Republican votes.
The two chambers will need to negotiate to reconcile the differences between the two measures before a bill can be sent to President Donald Trump to be signed into law.

Brad Parscale faces investigation for ‘stealing’ $40 million from Trump campaign: report
Embattled former Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale has been accused of "stealing" up to $40 million from President Donald Trump's campaign and $10 million from the Republican National Committee.
The Daily Mail first reported that Parscale is suspected of pocketing the money.
According to the Daily Mail:
A Trump insider explained to DailyMail.com that Parscale went into a tailspin after he was demoted in July and replaced by his former number two, Bill Stepien, as he's worried about the 'gravy train' ending and keeping up with his lavish lifestyle.
Biden merely has to appear ‘competent’ in Tuesday’s debate to doom Trump’s re-election: conservative
In his column for the Daily Beast, conservative Matt Lewis made the claim that any hope Donald Trump has of remaining in office for four more years will likely be dictated by what happens during his nationally televised debate with former Vice President Joe Biden on Tuesday night.
Lewis who is no fan of the president -- although he was exceedingly pleased with Trump's choice of conservative justice Amy Coney Barrett to replace Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg -- said Trump's reeling campaign needs a win which, he admitted, seemed unlikely to happen.
