From the July 19th edition of the Spokesman Review :
‘A farm bill approved last week in the U.S. House of Representatives divorcing agriculture subsidies from food aid to the poor was designed to speed up the legislative process, Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers said Thursday’.
‘The House also plans to bring a separate SNAP funding measure to the floor for a vote within a week, she said’.

And yesterday September 16 ”
‘House Republicans on Monday introduced a food stamp reform bill that they say will cut $40 billion from the program over 10 years’.
‘The House Rules Committee announced a meeting on Wednesday on HR 3102’.
‘The bill contains twice as much in cuts as the House Agriculture Committee originally sought for the program and it was devised by a task force led by House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) after an integrated farm bill failed on the House floor this summer’.
