Democratic U.S. Senator Bob Casey warned those at Penn State’s Ag Progress Days Wednesday about proposed regulation changes to food assistance programs.
Last year, Congress passed and President Trump signed a bipartisan Farm Bill. It includes funding for SNAP — the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, also known as food stamps.
“The legislative intent was ‘Don’t cut the SNAP program,’ and now they’re trying to do that, and we’ve got to fight hard against that,” Casey said.
