I support the idea that work requirements for those who receive Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, benefits could be expanded. 24/7 News Source reports that the U.S. Department of Agriculture unveiled the proposed rule today, the same day President Trump is expected to sign the farm bill.
Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue says the rule will restore the dignity of work for recipients, while it also respects taxpayers who are funding the program. Having a requirement for recipients to work while receiving the benefits allows them to lift themselves out of poverty. They can sharpen their work skills and hopefully keep moving up the ladder.
