House overrides Bush veto of farm bill — again

Reuters: Congress on Wednesday overturned President George W. Bush’s second veto of the $289 billion U.S. farm law, enacting 35 pages omitted from the original bill in the third veto override of Bush’s tenure. The rest of the farm bill became law on May 22, when the first override was passed. A clerical error deleted farm-export and food aid programs which now are part of the law.
