Child food security

Senate Bill Number: 

Senate Bill 65 would nullify certain administrative regulations and have the effect of banning SNAP (food assistance) benefits for parents who are behind in making child support payments.

This would mean more food insecurity for children and other members of that family. See an analysis from Kentucky Policy.

Bill Sponsor(s): 
Sens. Steven West, Ralph Alvarado

SB 65 was approved by the Senate State & Local Government Committee on February 10 and the full Senate, 30-6, on February 23..
