After passing a controversial farm bill minus food-stamp funding before the August recess, House Republicans began part two Monday after proposing a food-stamp bill with significant reforms.

House Republicans on Monday introduced a food-stamp-reform bill that they say will cut $40 billion from the program over 10 years.

The move sets up a dramatic debate and vote on the bill on Thursday, with the fate of the stalled farm bill likely hanging in the balance.

The House Rules Committee announced a Wednesday meeting on HR 3102.

The bill contains twice as many in cuts as the House Agriculture Committee originally sought for the program and it was devised by a task force led by House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) after an integrated-farm bill failed on the House floor this summer.
