U.S. Sen. Roy Blunt made the rounds in St. Joseph on Friday, touting a recent $55 million amendment that will keep federal food inspectors on the job, which affects the 2,800 workers at Triumph Foods, his first stop.

The U.S. Senate last week approved the amendment that was introduced by Mr. Blunt, the leading Republican on a subcommittee for agriculture appropriations, and Arkansas Sen. Mark Pryor, the leading Democrat on the subcommittee. The amendment helps fill a $55 million gap in the Department of Agriculture’s budget, caused by the sequestration.
