BOSTON – Tuesday, March 18, 2014 – Governor Deval Patrick today announced steps to preserve Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits for approximately 163,000 households in Massachusetts and avoid the loss of approximately $142 million in SNAP benefits set to be cut under the recently enacted federal Farm Bill.

I have never known a harder-working, more dedicated servant of the people than Tim Murray. For two decades, he has been a tireless champion of the Commonwealth and Worcester tenaciously focused on one simple goal: making life better for the citizens of Massachusetts.

I respect and support his choice, and am especially happy for his family as he takes this next step.
