U.S. House to Split Food Stamps From Farm Bill, Aide Says

U.S. House leaders have decided to split food stamps and other nutrition programs from farm subsidies and bring an agriculture-only bill up for a vote before the August recess, a Republican leadership aide said.

Such a move would amount to a divorce for farm and nutrition programs, which have moved through Congress as part of the same bill since 1977.
