Senate Passes Bipartisan Farm Bill
June 29, 2018 - The Senate passes their version of the Farm Bill, which protects SNAP and strengthens TEFAP, on a strong, bipartisan vote of 86-11!
Senate Agriculture Committee Passes Farm Bill
June 13, 2018 - The Senate Agriculture Committee passed its version of the Farm Bill out of Committee. The Senate Farm Bill presents a responsible, forward-looking vision to fight hunger, improve health and strengthen rural communities
The House REJECTS H.R. 2
May 18, 2018 - The House of Representatives rejected a Farm Bill that would have made indiscriminate cuts to SNAP and reduced state flexibility and local control to implement the program. Feeding Wisconsin hopes that Congress will revisit the Farm Bill and work toward passing a bipartisan bill that fights hunger and supports our rural communities by strengthening SNAP.
During the State of the Union address, the President said, “Nearly 5 million Americans have been lifted off food stamps," as an example of the improving economy.
This is a great example of why SNAP must be protected and why it was so important that the recently passed Farm Bill did not make any structural changes to the program. A primary feature of the program is that it expands when the economy is bad and the need is high, just like in 2008, and when the economy improves, the program contracts, as people "graduate" from the program as they make more money and get back on their feet.
