With the U.S. Senate moving on a farm bill, the House version may seem dead, but an Illinois congressman says that's not necessarily the case. The House bill stalled after what has been described as an unrelated fight over immigration policy in the bill.

The bill also proposes new work requirements for participants in the federal food stamp program, SNAP. Davis says that's not a bad thing.
