Agriculture Hearing Update

The House Agriculture Subcommittee on Nutrition and Horticulture held an audit hearing on USDA nutrition programs on July 21. Audrey Rowe, USDA food and nutrition service administrator, served as a panelist and was questioned on waste and duplication in the Supplemental Nutrition Assurance Program (SNAP), formerly known as food stamps.

SNAP served 45 million Americans in April 2011 with a direct benefit for the local economy—for every $5 of SNAP benefits, $9 is returned to the local economy. SNAP had a payment accuracy rate of 96 percent (considered a very good rating), and the program has also reduced inaccurate payments by $3.3 billion in the 2010 fiscal year.
