Missoula County's tracking mechanism for legislation proposed at the 64th session of the Montana Legislature.
Sent to Missoula Senators on 3/10, although consideration was delayed:Missoula County opposes Senate Bill 206 – Establish limits on the supplemental nutrition assistance program – on the Senate floor this afternoon. SB 206 would diminish SNAP’s ability to improve the nutrition and health of families in Missoula County and across the state. It will not strengthen the program’s integrity or improve administration. Severely limiting eligibility and access to SNAP will weaken our social safety net and result in fewer people receiving the food assistance they need to stay healthy, succeed in school and contribute to our economy. This bill would directly adversely impact our most vulnerable citizens – children, seniors, people with disabilities, and individuals struggling to find employment. Please oppose SB 206.Respectfully,Vickie Zeier on behalf of the Missoula County Commissioners
