Taking away public benefits

House Bill Number: 

HB 7 implements several harsh measures making it harder to get and keep food assistance through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and medical assistance through Medicaid. Together, these changes would lead to tens of thousands of Kentuckians losing vital assistance with groceries, medicine and doctors’ bills — largely by tripping them up with added paperwork requirements.
