Farm Bill Negotiation Atmosphere Improves Debates, Conference Committee negotiations on the Farm Bill, and legislation to protect homosexual and transgender people from employment discrimination. WGLT's Charlie Schlenker gets Congressman Rodney Davis's take on all of those issues.

The House Republican budget proposal authored by Congressman Paul Ryan calls for deeper cuts to the farm program than either the House or Senate version of the Farm Bill. With the Farm Bill negotiations going on now, before meaningful action on the budget, GLT's Charlie Schlenker asks Farm Bill Conference Committee Member Rodney Davis whether the Farm Bill will drive the budget this year.

Hear Davis's thoughts on a proposal to arm TSA agents in the wake of the L-A Airport Shooting.
