Dear Ms. Havens:

 

Thank you for writing to express your support for federal investment in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).  I appreciate hearing from you on this important issue.

 

I am pleased to tell you that the Consolidated Appropriations Act will provide $82.2 billion for SNAP in Fiscal Year 2014.  This bill passed both the House and Senate with bipartisan majorities and was signed into law by President Obama on January, 17, 2014.

 

As you may know, in recent years, many families have been forced to make tough choices during the economic downturn and I believe that we must continue our support for ongoing federal investment to provide food benefits to families and individuals in need.

 

SNAP benefits are essential to ensuring that low-income households in our country are not left hungry.  Be assured that I will continue to support funding for SNAP so that every American family has access to a healthy diet.

 

Again, thank you for writing to me.  Please do not hesitate to contact me again about this or any other issue of importance to you.

 

Sincerely,

 

Barbara Boxer
United States Senator
