The AP reports, “The House defeated a far-reaching food safety bill Wednesday after farm-state lawmakers complained it would be too invasive and others said it was pushed to the floor too quickly.” The measure “was considered under a suspension of House rules and needed a two-thirds vote for passage. The 280-150 vote was just a few shy of that threshold.” Majority Democrats “quickly scheduled another vote on the bill — under normal House rules, in which only a simple majority is needed — for Thursday.”
