In Surprise, US House Defeats Farm Bill with Big Food Stamp Cuts

Thursday, 20 June 2013 02:10 PM

Republican budget-cutters joined Democratic defenders of food stamps to defeat the $500 billion, five-year farm bill backed by GOP leaders on Thursday.

Agriculture Committee chairman Frank Lucas said there may not be a second chance to write a farm bill this year. Lucas' bill called for the largest cuts in food stamps in a generation.
