Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown optimistic

Published online: May 20, 2013

With the work of the Senate Agriculture Committee behind them, Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown is optimistic when the full Senate takes up the farm bill on Monday, May 20.

"Generally it's a good bill and we want to preserve the great majority of it on the Senate floor and get it to the House and move forward," Brown said.

While feeling good about the farm bill on the Senate side, Brown has major issues with the cuts made to the SNAP program by the House Ag Committee.

"I'm very concerned about what this means to children and families and want to make sure that we don't follow that in the Senate," said Brown.
