Food Stamp Reform

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) Reform Act of 2017 (H.R. 2996), introduced by Rep. Garret Graves (R-LA), would help reduce poverty and government dependency, increase self-sufficiency, and restore families by strengthening the effective and popular work requirements for all “able-bodied adults without dependents” (ABAWDS) who receive food stamps from SNAP.

This commonsense policy is popular with 90 percent of Americans, and has proven successful on the state level in Maine, Kansas and Alabama.
