Farm Bill could hit the House floor Wednesday

A long-awaited Farm Bill could finally see a vote on Wednesday. The Farm Bill has struggled to gain support from both sides of the aisle, with the food stamp program-or SNAP-serving as a major point of contention. Many Republicans thought cuts to the program didn’t go deep enough, while Democrats feared slashing the program would attack the millions of Americans struggling with poverty. Bloomberg News’ Alan Bjerga covers agriculture and he has the latest on the politics behind the bill. (Photo: Flickr/Juan.Glez)
