An Iowa legislator is expressing frustration towards the circumstances surrounding the farm bill. Senator Chuck Grassley says the House of Representatives inability to come to an agreement is frustrating.

He says since the Senate has already passed a bipartisan bill he’ll urge leadership to include their farm bill in a fiscal cliff deal. He says that the $23 billion their version saves would contribute greatly to solving the issue of a fiscal cliff.

He adds their version is the only one that will save money on any specific program.
