House Rejects Farm Bill

The debate over welfare benefits continues to derail plans to help farmers across the nation.  The U.S. House shot down the five-year Farm Bill.  Many opponents voted against the plan because it would’ve cut 20-billion dollars from the SNAP Food Stamp Program.  Congressman Bill Enyart didn’t like the idea of cutting food stamps, but he says overall, the Farm Bill was a good deal for farmers in Illinois.  It would’ve strengthened the crop insurance program, provided funds for Midwestern waterways, and given farmers access to lines of credit to expand their businesses.
