Many areas are still dealing with flooding, even as snow and sleet start to replace the rain. Some of the local major rivers are above flood stage and still rising. The good news is, many of the others have crested and will start to fall. The snow and sleet will continue through much of the day, before wrapping up tonight. Most areas will see several inches of accumulation. Keep it locked to WYMT for updates.
WASHINGTON (AP) - The House has voted down an overhaul of dairy policy in a massive farm bill that Republicans say would raise the price of a gallon of milk.
Supporters of the overhaul said the program was necessary to keep milk prices high. But milk, cheese and other dairy companies said those high prices would be passed on to consumers.
The vote was 291-135 in favor of an amendment by Republican Rep. Robert Goodlatte of Virginia. The vote does away with a proposed program that could dictate how much milk a farmer could produce.
House Speaker John Boehner called the program "Soviet-style." He supported the amendment.
