The Autism Society and other disability groups strongly opposed the Farm Bill, mainly because of its provisions on SNAP, aka food stamps. The bill went down 198-213. A statement from House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi mentioned the role of disabilities:
On a bipartisan basis, the House rejected a bad bill that failed farmers and working families. Republicans wrote a cruel, destructive Farm Bill that abandoned farmers and producers amid plummeting farm prices and the self-inflicted damage of President Trump’s trade brinkmanship. Their heartless bill would have slashed $23 billion in SNAP benefits for children, seniors, students, 1.5 million veterans, 23,000 servicemembers, individuals with disabilities and working families.
