Naples, FL—Today, FGA Vice President of Executive Affairs Sam Adolphsen testified before the U.S. House Committee on Agriculture during a hearing for a proposed food stamp rule that would help move able-bodied, childless adults from welfare to work.
“There are 2.6 million able-bodied adults on food stamps who will be waived from the work requirement this year, and three out of four don’t work at all. In an economy with 7.6 million available jobs, waivers from work requirements shouldn’t be so easy to get. The Trump administration has the authority and the duty to fix the regulation and return waivers to their original purpose.”
