SNAP Program Work Requirements

An act relating to public assistance; requiring the human services department to impose work participation requirements for supplemental nutrition assistance program participants to the full extent authorized by federal law.

Bill Highlights

  • Senate Bill 242 proposes to revoke any waiver of federal work participation requirements under the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and establish work participation requirements for recipients of SNAP to the full extent allowable by federal law. (source: NMLegis.gov)
  • Viante New Mexico supports this bill because we believe it would both increase labor force participation while also addressing poverty, giving people the opportunity to become self-sustainable through employment.
