Gov. Murphy opposes food stamp cuts
Governor Phil Murphy yesterday issued this statement:
"If enacted, the Farm Bill being discussed in the House could prevent tens of thousands of New Jersey families just trying to get by, and who are turning to SNAP as a matter of pure necessity, from being able to put food on their table.
"This latest version continues an uncomfortable trend toward heavy-handed work requirements as a damaging litmus test for vital services. I will continue to work with our entire Congressional delegation to ensure fair and equitable rules that protect both families and the viability of the SNAP program -- neither of which the proposed requirements do."
The House may vote on this bill as early as Friday.
Please join Governor Murphy
in opposing this harmful proposal.
