farm bill update

Thanks to everyone who called your Senators and Reps about the Farm Bill yesterday. Good news - the conference committee that was working yesterday has reached a tentative agreement on the bill that includes $10.4 billion for nutrition programs. It makes a difference when you contact those whom we elect to govern on our behalf! The final bill will probably be up for passage next week, so we may need to call again.
