H.R. 2 – Agriculture and Nutrition Act: No
H.R. 2 – Agriculture and Nutrition Act: No. I opposed this nearly trillion dollar farm subsidy bill when it left the House https://mcclintock.house.gov/newsroom/vote-notes/hr-2-agriculture-and-nutrition-act-no,
and it comes back from conference committee even worse. The House version at least took a stab at providing work requirements for about 20 percent of single able-bodied SNAP recipients and added a few important forest-management provisions. Yet even these half-hearted measures didn’t get past the objections of Senate Democrats. All the reform that is left is a three-percent reduction in state work waivers for SNAP and extension of an already existing 3,000-acre categorical exclusion from NEPA for forest management – hardly justification for a bill that spends nearly $80 of an average family’s taxes every year to keep their grocery prices artificially high.
