Harrisonburg, Va. (WHSV) Lawmakers have until the end of the year to make a decision on the farm bill.

One of the controversial parts of the bill is food stamps and how much money goes toward them.

"It's paid for somewhere and so that would be paid for on the backs of other taxpayers and so I think very well could be prudent that, that program and other things would need to be trimmed back as well," said Del. Tony Wilt (R), 26th District-Harrisonburg.

Wilt attended a session in Harrisonburg hosted by the Valley Family Forum where he listened to concerns from constituents that he will take back to the general assembly soon.

Delegate Wilt says the agricultural part of the farm bill is important to the nation and the state.
