House Ag Announces First Two Hearings

House Ag Announces First Two Hearings The House Agriculture Committee announced two public hearings next week as the committee readies for considerations on the 2018 Farm Bill. State of the rural economy is on the table for the first hearing, scheduled for Wednesday, Feb. 15. The second hearing, to be held the following day, will delve into the pros and cons of restricting the types of foods and beverages that people can buy with their SNAP benefits—a topic long contested by nutrition advocates and industry groups. Both hearings will be held at the Longworth House Building in Washington, D.C. For more information on the House Agriculture Committee hearings
