Budget plan targets farm subsidies

FRESNO, Calif.

Congressman Paul Ryan of Wisconsin has proposed a $3.5-trillion budget plan that would reduce payments to farmers by $30-billion over 10 years.

Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack is cautioning lawmakers from cutting too deep. Vilsack says there needs to be a proper balance between reducing spending but not limiting the capacity to expand the economy.
