LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – The Galt House was filled with thousands of farmers from across the Commonwealth Saturday.

Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell spoke to the State Farm Bureau members during their annual meeting. The major point of debate was in the farm bill which could also include cuts to food stamps.

McConnell told the crowd that the benefit program has been handed too much money. The five-year farm bill has met opposition in the house largely because of the Snap Benefit Cuts.
