Klobuchar believes the conference committee will agree on a farm bill. “People went out of their way to say they wanted to come to an agreement,” she said after the meeting. “This is a moment where we can show goodwill and some progress out of the chaos.”

Peterson was more circumspect. Tea Party Republicans are not going to get what they want from the conference committee in terms of food stamp cuts, he said. Boehner may be forced to rely on more Democrats than Republicans if the House is to pass a farm bill. This was what the speaker and his lieutenants had to do to win a vote ending the government shutdown.
