May 15, 2013 Statements For the Record

Mr. Speaker, the House Agriculture Committee will vote today on a Farm Bill that cuts $20 billion from nutrition support from the poorest, most vulnerable Americans – children, seniors, the disabled, and the working poor.

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program – SNAP – is a lifeline for nearly 50 million Americans to have access to healthy, affordable food and avoid hunger.

MS. McCOLLUM: Mister Speaker, I rise in strong opposition to H.R.1406 – a bill more appropriately titled the ‘More Work, Less Pay Act’.

My colleagues on both sides of the aisle have spoken today about the challenges facing working families.  Far too many families are still struggling financially to make ends meet, and as their Representatives we should be voting on legislation that provides more opportunities and support for America’s workers.
