Proposed Changes to SNAP Eligibility Spark Concerns Among Kentucky Lawmakers and Advocates

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – Kentucky lawmakers are considering a bill, House Bill 367 that could tighten the rules for receiving food assistance also known as SNAP benefits. The bill proposes changes that opponents fear could lead to hunger for many families in need. One key change is replacing the current SNAP application process with a federal asset test which critics argue could make it harder for people to qualify for help with groceries. Advocates for maintaining the current system argue that SNAP benefits are crucial for families. Additionally, concerns have been raised about the potential impact on school lunch programs and Kentucky farmers as well as older adults who rely on SNAP to supplement their fixed incomes.

Despite the bill passage in the House it still awaits a vote in the Senate. If approved it could result in significant cuts to benefits for thousands of Kentuckians affecting not only their ability to put food on the table but also the broader local economy. Advocates are urging lawmakers to consider the potential consequences of these proposed changes on the most vulnerable members of their communities.
