Food stamp program likely to be trimmed

WASHINGTON (AP) -- One of the few programs exempted from this year's automatic spending cuts, the government's food stamp program, which helps feed 1 in every 7 Americans, is likely to get trimmed. Unresolved is by how much.

The Democratic chairman of the Senate Agriculture Committee is only willing to take roughly one-half of 1 percent, or about $400 million annually, off the top. Her Republican counterpart in the House would give the program a makeover and cut it by five times that amount.

The popular safety net program has more than doubled in size since 2008 and cost more than $78 billion last year.

Dollars for the food stamp program will be included in House and Senate farm bills that both agriculture panels plan to consider next week.
