Cotton Statement on Strengthening Food Stamp Work Requirements

Washington, D.C. — U.S. Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) released the following statement after the United States Department of Agriculture announced a rule that would strengthen work requirements for able-bodied adults without dependents in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program:

“Arkansans want to help their fellow man in need, but their assistance should be taken in good faith. That means if you’re receiving food stamps and you can get a job, you should. Secretary Perdue’s decision to strengthen work requirements for food stamps ensures that food aid is being taken in good faith, going to the Americans who truly need it.”
