Space visits district to address hunger problem
(2007-12-18)
Rep. Zack Space, (D) 18th DISTRICT
(WOUB) - Congressman Zack Space is planning to introduce a bill to help fund hunger relief programs.

The legislation mirrors a bill introduced in the Senate by Ohio Democrat Sherrod Brown and would provide $40 million in emergency funds until the 2007 Farm Bill is signed by the president.

The Farm Bill has passed both the House and Senate and is heading to a conference committee for reconciliation in January. The bill contains money for hunger relief.

The Southeast Ohio Democrat's announcement comes on heels of a trip to foodbanks in his 18th District.
