Posted: Updated:

Guam - Senator Rory Respicio is concerned about a provision in the farm bill passed by the U.S. Senate today. He's written to Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo for clarity on whether the measure would prohibit cockfighting in Guam. The farm bill reportedly includes a provision that would make it a federal crime to attend or bring a child under the age of 16 to an animal fighting event including cockfighting. 

The farm bill also includes a provision which cuts food stamp funding by around $8 billion over ten years. The measure heads to the president for his review.
