Tennessee officials say not to worry after the Trump administration proposed a change to food stamp rules, possibly stripping millions from the program.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture
is proposing to reduce broad-based categorical eligibility, which makes it
easier for Americans with higher incomes to participate in the supplemental
nutrition assistance, or SNAP, program.
Tennessee Department of Human Services press secretary tells us the proposed change will not impact Tennessee.
We’re told that’s because recipients in Tennessee do not use that eligibility under consideration.
