From the Coalition on Human Needs (http://www.chn.org):
Now that the Super Committee has failed to reach an agreement on deficit reduction, action shifts to the House and Senate Agriculture Committees to develop a Farm Bill. Reps. Rosa DeLauro (D-CT) and James McGovern (D-MA) are circulating a Dear Colleague letter urging the House Agriculture Committee to protect SNAP and other low-income nutrition programs as it considers options for the next farm bill.
Urge your House Member to support SNAP and nutrition programs by signing the letter by Friday, December 9, COB. You can find contact information for your Representative at http://www.house.gov. (NOTE: Mike Doyle and Robert Brady have already signed on—if you live in either of their districts, please thank them for their support.)
