Friday on The Chad Hasty Show District 19 Representative Jodey Arrington joined the show to discuss the latest news and topics in Washington.

Arrington and Hasty talked about the announced retirement from Congress of Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, as well as the new farm bill and how it will affect cotton producers and welfare recipients.

On the farm bill's inclusion of new work requirements for those receiving welfare assistance, Arrington said,

I hope this is the beginning of many more policies that incentivise people moving up and out of the cycle of poverty and dependency on government welfare programs.
