Davis Applauds Passage of Farm Bill
U.S. Rep. Rodney Davis (R-Ill.) today applauded passage of H.R. 2, the Agriculture and Nutrition Act.
“Passing this bill not only shows support for agriculture, but it shows the American people that we are not satisfied with the status quo, which is a welfare system that perpetuates poverty,” said Davis. “Despite our growing economy, we still have 9 million more people on SNAP today than we did at the height of the recession when jobs were scarce and unemployment reached double-digits. By investing historic amounts in workforce training, this bill will help pair work-capable adults receiving SNAP benefits with jobs being created by our economy. We should always strive to make government better and this bill does that.”
