Divided House Republicans Press for Farm Drought Relief
AUGUST 01, 2012
“With Republicans badly split over farm subsidies and cutting food stamps, House GOP leaders Tuesday decided to drop plans to extend the current farm program for one year and instead will press for immediate help for drought-stricken livestock producers. The decision comes as Republicans feel pressure to do something for drought-hit farmers and ranchers before Congress begins its summer recess.” (AP)
