At a time when a huge number of people are on food stamps and the free and reduced school lunch program, lawmakers on Capitol Hill are still debating the Farm Bill.
 
 
Oregon Congressman Greg Walden says 80 percent of the Farm Bill goes to these types of food programs, which can stir up controversy.
 
 "and then the other 20 percents relates to an important safety net for agriculture and research centers - ag stations. Those stations are located in hood river county- burns- pendleton - ontario all over the district- that's where the funding comes from."
 
 
The Oregon Congressman also says if the Farm Bill isn't passed they will have to revert back to very old laws dating back to the 1930's and 1940's.  One example is the "milk law" of 1949.
 
Walden was asked questions from several northwest radio and print reporters in a special telephone conferense last week.
