government services remain closed, as the partial government shutdown
Democrats again passed an appropriations bill Thursday that would reopen USDA’s
Farm Service Agency, food inspections, and provide long-term funding for the
SNAP program, but like a previous House bill, it is unlikely to receive a vote
in the Senate since it does not include the border security funding President
Trump has asked for.
Cheri Bustos of Illinois helped pass the legislation that, if passed by the
senate, will also restore funding to the Peoria Ag Lab.
