The West Virginia Senate passed legislation Friday that would require food stamp recipients in the state to work at least 20 hours a week to receive benefits.
The state Senate voted 27-6 to require West Virginia residents, ages 18-49 who are not disabled, pregnant, or military veterans and do not have dependent children, to work a minimum of 20 hours per week to receive food stamp benefits through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).
The bill already passed the West Virginia House in a 78-19 vote.
Forty-six of the 55 counties in West Virginia had waivers that would exempt them from having to comply with federal guidelines mandating that able-bodied adults without dependent children have to work or volunteer to receive benefits. – READ MORE[give_form id=”79809″] [contentcards url=”http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2018/03/10/west-virginia-gives-green-light-work-requirements-food-stamps/” target=”_blank”]
