New farm bill could benefit state’s peanut farmers

Special to SEGAZINE

Georgia peanut farmers would get a better deal this year under Congress proposed Farm Bill, but some residents could be removed from food stamp rolls if the legislation is passed.Lawmakers in Washington, D.C. are seeking to remake the federal farm subsidy program and scale back nutrition programs.The U.S. Senate could pass its bill this week, and the House will follow with its version soon, though passage there is far from certain.Farm and nutrition programs expired at the end of 2012.The Senate proposes light modifications to the food stamp program that would not hit Georgias 1.9 million recipients, but the House version would eliminate a practice that automatically gives food stamps to people who qualify for other forms of assistance.
