Food stamps stricken from farm bill

House Republicans passed a Farm Bill Thursday by splitting apart funding for food stamps from federal agricultural policy.
Food stamps constitutes about 80 percent of the funding in a Farm Bill.
The vote made clear that Republicans intend to make significant reductions in food stamp money and handed Republican leaders a much-needed victory three weeks after conservative lawmakers and rural state Democrats revolted and blocked the original version of the bill that included food stamp money, the Washington Post reported.
