Lame Duck Call-In Day: Wednesday Nov. 28th

by

11.26.2013 Today, November 26th, Congress reconvened for the lame duck session. The Farm Bill, which includes SNAP, has not yet passed through Congress and will likely be part of future budget discussions. We can't let Congress forget about the 46 million Americans who rely on SNAP benefits.
