Lawmaker gets national attention for food stamp reform
Health, News

An Oklahoma lawmaker is making headlines for proposing cutting billions from the nation’s food stamp program.

Oklahoma’s Third District Representative Frank Lucas wants to slice $20 billion over the next 10 years.

Lucas told the Tulsa World that the proposed reductions “won’t take a calorie off the plate of anyone who needs help.”

Instead, to achieve the savings, he would eliminate categorical eligibility which would impact food stamp recipients in 43 states, including Oklahoma.

Lucas said he’ll start formally writing the bill later this month.
