Hoosier Congressmen in Federal Budget Debate

Congressional negotiations on a new farm bill begin today and some Hoosiers in Congress are lobbying conferees on what they want to see included in the legislation.
 
Both the House and Senate-passed bills would trim spending on food stamps by tightening eligibility and work requirements.  But the House version would cut four-billion dollars a year, which is 10 times deeper than the Senate‘s version.   
 
Third District Representative Marlin Stutzman led a push to separate food stamps from the farm bill, and is circulating a letter urging negotiators to keep it that way.
