McGovern Statement on Inclusion of Anti-Hunger Language in House Rules Package

Today, Congressman James P. McGovern (D-MA), Chairman-elect of the House Rules Committee and a leading voice in Congress for strengthening anti-hunger programs, released the following statement:

“I stood on the House Floor and promised the president that Democrats would use every tool at our disposal to prevent this administration’s assault on the poor. That’s why our rules package directs the House Office of General Counsel to explore all possible legal options for responding to the administration’s  attempt to limit access to SNAP for hundreds of thousands of hungry Americans. We will not stand by and watch this administration circumvent the will of Congress and undo the bipartisan 2018 Farm Bill. We are holding this administration accountable on day one.”
