President Barack Obama will be visiting Michigan today and will sign the Agriculture Act of 2014 while here.

The bill, was recently agreed upon by legislators after nearly two years, and will expand federal crop insurance and end direct government payments to farmers. The majority of the legislation however is the food stamp program which contributed to the hold up. In the end, food stamps will be cut by $800 million a year, or about one percent.

President Obama will arrive in Michigan around noon, tour the Michigan Biotechnology Institute, and then head to Michigan State University where he will deliver remarks and sign the legislation.

Among some of those in attendance will be U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow, U.S. Rep. Dan Kildee, state Senator Jim Ananich and Flint Mayor Dayne Walling.
