(WLNS) - The long delayed farm bill could be heading to President Obama as early as Tuesday. The legislation easily advanced in the Senate on Monday.
The measure will expand federal crop insurance as well as consolidate agricultural conservation programs.
The bill also includes a crackdown on food stamp fraud and a cut to the program. Total cuts to food stamps are expected to be about $800 million dollars, which is about 1 percent of the program.
If the bill passes in Senate, it will head to President Obama to sign into law.
