Kerry/Kyl Farm Bill Amendments on North Korea Food Aid

Senators John Kerry and Jon Kyl offered two competing amendments to the Senate version of the 2012 Farm Bill. Kerry's amendment, adopted by a vote of 59-40, would prohibit title II assistance from the Food for Peace program going to North Korea unless authorized by a presidential waiver. Kyl's amendment, which failed 43-56, would ban such assistance to North Korea, and would not allow for a waiver.
