Congressman Rodney Davis represents the 13th district of Illinois. He has been hard at work trying to improve the Farm Bill that was passed four years ago.
Davis says the bill passed but unfortunately it was a Republican only vote as the Democrats chose to sit this one out. This surprised Davis seeing as some of the Democrats represent rural Illinois communities.
Davis says he believes two Democrats told Democrats on the House Agriculture Committee to abstain from the vote.
Davis appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
