Western Illinois Congresswoman Cheri Bustos believes there’s plenty on consensus on a new Farm Bill, but she says there’s one holdout—House Republicans—and the work requirement issue involving the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. She spoke on the subject following a visit to a Quad City area farm this week and listed the items that are important to her.
 

 

 
Bustos, along with Illinois House colleagues John Shimkus and Rodney Davis, serve on the Farm Bill Conference Committee. The current Farm Bill is set to expire on September 30th.
