Metro

WASHINGTON D.C. – Three Washington Republican lawmakers are in favor of slashing food stamps.

U.S. Representatives Dave Reichert, Cathy McMorris Rodgers, and Doc Hastings voted to cut $40 billion from the federal program yesterday.

Washington’s six Democratic House members voted no on the issue.

The proposal now heads to a Senate-House conference committee.
