Pro Farmer Washington Consultant Jim Wiesemeyer did what he does best in several “Inside Washington Today” columns on www.profarmer.com last week — he cut through all the noise of the farm bill drama and bottom lined upcoming action.
House Republicans earlier this week passed a nutrition bill with $39 billion in cuts (over 10 years) to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP — formerly food stamps).
