Farm bill forum to be held in Iowa City this weekend

Posted:

Iowa congressman Dave Loebsack will host a farm bill forum this weekend in Iowa City.

Loebsack, a Sioux City native, will be joined by Minnesota congressman Collin Peterson--the top Democrat on the House Ag Committee.

The pair say they'll discuss where the farm bill stands.

Two weeks ago, the House approved a scaled-back farm bill.

But, that could set up an even bigger fight over food stamps and the role of domestic food aid in the United States.
