Ask Your Senator to Co-Sponsor Senator Gillibrand's "Restore SNAP Cuts" Amendment!
Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) is now looking for co-sponsors for her 'Restore SNAP Cuts' amendment. This amendment restores the $4.1 billion/10 years cut to SNAP made in the Farm Bill, and offsets this cost by reducing payments to crop insurance companies without reducing the crop insurance subsidies the government pays directly to farmers.
If you support this restoration, please contact your Senators and ask that they co-sponsor Senator Gillibrand's amendment to restore the $4.1 billion SNAP cut.
