Food Assistance Sticking Point in Farm Bill Conference

One of the sticking points in the House-Senate conference committee negotiations over the farm bill is the SNAP program. The House wants to cut forty billion dollars over ten years, while the Senate only cuts four billion dollars.

South Dakota Congresswoman Kristi Noem says there has to be a middle ground somewhere………

Noem says they should not base their decision on how much is spent on the food assistance program………

Noem says there should be tighter restrictions on those who qualify for food stamps………

The House and Senate is back for a few days this week, then off for Thanksgiving, and will have only about three weeks in Washington in December.
