GOP Drops Food Stamps from Farm Bill

House Republican leaders "have decided to drop food stamps from the farm bill and are whipping the farm-only portion of the bill for a vote that will likely come this week," Roll Call reports.

"The nutrition portion of the bill would be dealt with later."

"The 'new' farm bill would be the bill as it finished on the floor before the break, with the addition of a repeal of the 1949 law that requires the passage or extension of a farm bill."
