New Trump rules for food stamps would mean changes in rural Minnesota


December 21, 2018

Some food stamp recipients in rural Minnesota counties would need to find a job to continue receiving food assistance under proposed new regulations announced Thursday by the Trump administration.

The move would strip food support from people who are most in need of help, critics said, adding that it amounts to an end-run around Congress, which had dropped a similar proposal championed by President Donald Trump in order to break a deadlock on the 2018 farm bill. That bill was signed into law on Thursday.
