Central Illinois Congressman Darin LaHood says a 20-percent cut to the U.S. Department of Agriculture budget runs too deep. And one of the casualties in President Trump’s budget plan is the Peoria ag lab. LaHood says a joint effort is already underway in Illinois to keep the facility open.

LaHood says Illinois’ entire congressional delegation has signed a letter sent to the President pushing to keep the lab open.
