The debate is on--again--in Congress over another round of cuts to the SNAP program.
Texas Food Bank Network CEO Celia Cole told 550 KTSA News the reductions would come at a time when millions of families are just getting back on their feet.
"We feel like these are the very programs that can help low-income people get back on their feet, that can help the economy recover. It just doesn't make any sense that Congress is doing this at this time" Cole said. Congressman Pete Gallego agreed.
"About 98 to 99-percent of the people who use SNAP need it and qualify when you go back and do the auditing" the Congressman said.
Any cuts would come on the heels of slashes that were made to the program at the tail end of last year.
