President Obama Signs Farm Bill That Trims Food Stamps

Posted: Updated:

President Barack Obama has signed into law a farm bill he says will ensure children don't go hungry. 
 
The bill will spread benefits to farmers in every region of the country while trimming the food stamp program; the cuts inspired a two-year battle over the legislation.
 
The bulk of its $100 billion per year cost is for the food stamp program that aids 1 in 7 Americans.
 
Obama says it still protects vulnerable Americans. (AP)
