(24/7 News) -- A USDA proposal that could cut food assistance to three-point-one million people will be open for public comment. The new rule would change how the agency's Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, is administered.
Currently, people who are enrolled in their state's food assistance programs qualify for federal assistance as well. The Trump administration says the new policy would save billions of dollars.
If people lost federal assistance under the proposal, they would have to reapply and verify they meet federal standards.
