Washington Update on House Ag. Comm. Reconciliation Measure & Upcoming Senate Ag. Comm. Farm

The email alert that came in last night is from the Food Research Action Committee.  Links to the House Ag Committee Reconcilliation Bill which includes the SNAP cuts are below. The Senate AG Committee is expected to release a Farm Bill proposal today with a possible vote next Wednesday, according to FRAC.

PLEASE KEEP UP the calls and emails to Senators Kerry, Brown and your Congressperson.   
 
MESSAGE TO CONGRESS:  Strengthen and Protect SNAP.  Urge your Senators and Representatives to oppose any proposals that would change SNAP’s structure or reduce funding, restrict eligibility or reduce benefits (including limiting the “Heat and Eat” option states like Massachusetts have).  Congress should strengthen, not weaken SNAP, including the President’s proposal to restore the cut in the ARRA boost.
