STATEMENT FROM CONGRESSMAN JOE MORELLE ON PRESIDENT TRUMP’S PROPOSAL TO CUT SNAP BENEFITS

July 25, 2019
Press Release

(Washington, DC) --

“President Trump’s decision to end Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits for three million people demonstrates an utter disregard for the needs of everyday Americans. Local providers estimate this action could impact upwards of 10,000 children, seniors, and families in Monroe County who rely on SNAP for food security.

“We should be doing everything in our power to uplift the most vulnerable in our community, not pulling the rug out from underneath them in their time of need.”
