“Not under my watch” Fetterman opposes any reductions to SNAP payments

John Fetterman, a senator from Pennsylvania, spoke out against proposals to reduce SNAP assistance for lakhs of Americans.

After the epidemic, lawmakers reconsidered the next phase of the SNAP food stamp initiative, which experienced a rise in participation.

As expected pandemic-era regulations come to an end, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York stated that lawmakers should instead focus on enhancing access for those who need it.

Around 2 million individuals were brought out of poverty, she claimed.

Republicans claim that some recent modifications, such as the most recent 21% increase in payments each month, arrive at an excessive cost to consumers.

An additional comment about the matter was made by Fetterman on Monday, April 17.

Sen. Fetterman is going to take over his first committee meeting on Wednesday in the Subcommittee on Food and Nutrition, Specialized Agriculture, Organics, and Study. The meeting’s topic will be SNAP and the important support it offers working households using the next Farm Bill.
