Davis on Farm Bill Reforms

Story by WBGZ Radio

Recent reforms to the farm bill saved taxpayers over $100-billion and Central Illinois Congressman Rodney Davis hopes to continue those reforms with the upcoming farm bill negotiations. The Taylorville Republican says the last farm bill flipped the emphasis from SNAP benefits to agriculture.

Now he hopes to focus on getting those on food and nutrition benefits into the workforce.

Davis is hoping his colleagues on the House Ag Committee will work with him to help get those on the benefit programs into good paying jobs.
