Hagadorn-Farm Bill

A Republican candidate for Congress in Minnesota's first district is applauding the passage of the Farm Bill by the House of Representatives.
Jim Hagedorn, who grew up on a family farm, told Winona Radio News the farm bill is one of several key ways to support southern Minnesota farmers and agricultural interests.

Hagedorn says he is concerned that the farm bill did not address broken and costly country-of-origin lebeling rules, a matter, he says, may significantly curtail U-S livestock trade with Canada and Mexico.

The House version of the bill reduces the food stamp program by one percent while Republicans had sought a 5-percent decrease.
