WASHINGTON, D.C. -- President Obama signed the nearly trillion dollar farm bill Friday.
Under the bill, farmers get a financial cushion.
Millions of the needy get the cushion of food stamps.
That program is cut by one-percent, far less that republicans demanded.
"You don't always get what you want and you don't when you compromise," said state representative Cheri Bustos. "Overall I think we did a great job for the family farmers. They have crop insurance, which was the number one request I heard from family farmers."
Bustos was speaking today before members of the local farm bureau in Peoria.
