Congressman Olver Joins the Massachusetts Delegation in Supporting the SNAP Program

Statement

Location: Washington, DC

Today I joined my colleagues from the Massachusetts delegation in sending a letter to the leadership of the House Agriculture Committee, encouraging them to protect funding for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) in the 2012 Farm Bill. SNAP not only helps hungry families, it is an extremely effective form of local economic stimulus -- for every $1.00 invested in benefits, SNAP generates $1.73 in economic activity.
