South Dakota Farm Bureau President Says Nutrition Bill May Be Tough To Pass

South Dakota Farm Bureau President Says Nutrition Bill May Be Tough To Pass

 

The House is expected to take up the nutrition bill this week that would cut about $ 40 billion over 10 years.  South Dakota Farm Bureau President Scott Vanderwal says while the supplemental nutrition assistance program needs reforming, that type of bill with that much in cuts may be tough to pass.

House Agriculture Committee Chairman Frank Lucas says he’s seeking to restore the intent of welfare reforms adopted in 1996 to SNAP. Vanderwal says his group supports the idea of reforming SNAP.

House leadership says the intent of their nutrition legislation is to refocus the program to those who need it the most.
