Davis Critical of Democrats in Farm Bill Process

Story by WBGZ Radio

Taylorville Republican Congressman Rodney Davis continues his criticism of his colleagues' objection to measures that would help those on government benefits programs get into the workforce. Working on the farm bill, Democrats say they were not invited into the process while Republicans contend Democrats had no intention of being involved.

Davis says he can't understand why a Democrats that he worked with on the farm bill process in 2014 are now working with party leadership to avoid passing something that will "give Donald Trump and Republicans a victory, even though they know it's the right thing to do."

The next step will be a conference committee that will likely craft the bill in its final form. Davis hopes the bill gets to the House floor by the end of the month so it can be sent to the Senate.
