House Republicans Proceed Along Two Tracks on Cliff Plan

Another influential GOP moderate, Rep. Charlie Dent of Pennsylvania, said he would vote for the Senate bill and doesnít want to try to amend it because thereís no telling what the Senate might do in response.

Agriculture Chairman Frank Lucas of Oklahoma indicated he would likely vote for the Senate version because of the nine-month extension of the farm bill: ďIt would appear to me that the farm bill extension language thatís in the Senate version at this moment is the best way to address the milk cliff.Ē

Sam Goldfarb, Emily Holden, Niels Lesniewski and David Harrison contributed to this report.
