Yesterday, the United States Senate passed the farm bill, which establishes agricultural and food policy for the next five years. One key component within the bill is the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), often referred to as food stamps.
The Senate version of the farm bill differs substantially from the House version in regards to SNAP.
Debbie Stabenow is a U.S. Senator for Michigan and the ranking member of the Senate Agriculture Committee. She spoke with Stateside’s Lester Graham about the differences between the House and Senate versions of this year's bill.
