Farm Bill and SNAP Update

July 03, 2018 10:15 AM | Cynthia Pritchard (Administrator)

Great news! Last Thursday, with overwhelming bipartisan support, Senators passed their Farm Bill that preserves and strengthens SNAP. A variety of amendments were considered, including one that would have created harsher SNAP time limits and requirements for those looking for work, including parents with young children. Nonrprofits had encouraged Senators to reject harmful amendments to SNAP and to maintain the bipartisan SNAP provisions agreed to in the legislation. Fortunately, Senators tabled the harmful amendment and ultimately maintained the bipartisan SNAP provisions.
