Federal Budget Proposal Would Hit Oregon Food Stamp Program Particularly Hard, Study Says

Congress will be deciding soon whether to eliminate food stamp benefits for about 255,000 low-income Americans.1 The cuts are contained in the U.S. House of Representative’s budget “reconciliation” bill passed on November 18.

This bill would slash more than $700 million in food stamp benefits for low-income Americans over the next six years.2 By contrast, the U.S. Senate budget “reconciliation” bill would protect the Food Stamp program entirely from cuts. The final outcome will be determined in a conference committee involving members from both chambers, and the conference agreement will be sent to both chambers for approval.
