CORRECTION: Senator Blunt comments on Farm Bill
Monday, July 2, 2012 ~ Updated 2:36 PM
Comments sent by the office of Sen. Roy Blunt, R-MO, were mistakenly not included in a story about the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program and the 2012 Farm Bill in Sunday's Southeast Missourian and online at http://www.semissourian.com/story/186595.... The comments follow:
"I'm pleased the Senate was able to work together to pass this bill, which takes steps to reduce the deficit and save taxpayers more than $23 billion overall. I'll continue looking for ways to reduce fraud and abuse in all programs, including nutrition programs, which make up nearly 80 percent of Farm Bill spending."
