SNAP ABAWD Rule Blocked

A federal judge issued an injunction on March 13, blocking the Trump administration from implementing a rule change that would force nearly 700,000 Americans off of SNAP. The rule change was set to take effect April 1. FRAC’s Ellen Vollinger, told the Associated Press that FRAC opposes harmful changes to SNAP at any time. But the idea of pressuring low-income workers to keep their hours up is particularly dangerous right now, she said. “You don’t want to have workers going out when they’re sick and trying to document the right number of hours just to keep their benefits,” she said.
