While the House’s Farm Bill opted for dramatic cuts to proven food assistance programs for our nation’s most vulnerable, the Senate has opted for a bipartisan Farm Bill that not only protects SNAP but also creates positive policy for farmers, the environment, families, and our economy. Exactly what a Farm Bill should do!
The Senate is expected to vote THIS WEEK on this good bill. Please make a quick call or two now!
WHAT YOU CAN DO
- Ask our Senators to support SNAP by voting yes on a bipartisan Farm Bill by Senators Debbie Stabenow (MI-D) and Pat Roberts (KS-R) and rejecting any amendments that would take food out of hungry families’ refrigerators or create overly onerous barriers to accessing nutrition.
PLEASE NOTE: Sen. Mike Lee was one of only three senators to vote against hearing the bill in the Senate. He needs to hear from Utahns about why this bill is important to his constituents.
