U.S. Representative Kevin Cramer was in Bismarck this morning to update his constituents on issues in D.C.
Cramer said he expects discussion in the House to surround the debt, start of the affordable care act in October and the farm bill, when congress gets back from recess in September.
He added that they first need to pass the nutrition piece of the farm bill and then they can go to conference committee with the Senate.
"Discussions have already begun. There's already been some negotiating going on between the leadership in the House Ag and the Senate Ag committees. So I think it will be very efficient once we get back and it will move along rather quickly," says Rep. Kevin Cramer.
U.S. Senator John Hoeven has already been asked to be on that committee from the Senate. Cramer said he doesn't expect to be asked to be on it from the House side.
