Stabenow open to more farm bill food-stamp reforms

The Senate bill cuts $4 billion from food stamps, but the House goes further, by $12 billion, mostly by eliminating closing doors to food stamp eligibility.

Stabenow said she is continuing to meet with House Agriculture Chairman Frank Lucas (R-Okla.). 

Both sides say that the fate of the farm bill now rests with President Obama and Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio).
