Comments

Just say "no" to drug tests. Republican lawmakers are bucking against the Trump administration's rumored proposal to allow states to drug test people applying for food stamps. House Agriculture Chairman Mike Conaway, a Republican, and fellow Representative Glenn Thompson, also a Republican, both told the Washington Examiner they would vote against such a measure if it were introduced in Wednesday's markup session.

Seems to be on middle ground with hemp. There are efforts to include legalization of hemp in the Farm Bill where Conaway said he would not oppose as long as he doesn't lose voters "If it loses more votes than it gets, my recommendation would be to drop it,"
