Federal lawmakers vote to cut food stamps
KFDM News - The House of Representatives voted to cut nearly $4 bullion a year in food stamps. That's a five percent reduction.
Nearly one in seven Americans uses food stamps. The close vote was a win for conservatives after Democrats united in opposition to the cuts.
The proposed bill puts new requirements in place for recipients, including including taking drug tests.
Food stamps costs have more than doubled in the last five years as a result of the recession.
