Governor Mary Fallin
Sen. Kay Floyd

March 8, 2013

 This is in reference to House Bill 1909, the amendment that requires able-bodied persons without children must work 20 hours per week to receive food stamps from the SNAP program.I receive a Veterans disability pension for being permanently disabled.How will a person like myself know if I'm excluded from this work requirement? Will this amendment provide,(1)definitions of able-bodied persons,(2)definitions of disabled persons and(3)list the agencies who consider their recipients disabled(like the Veteran's Affairs or Social Security Office)? In addition,will this amendment give the DHS the authority and discretion to exclude Veterans or persons who receive disability pensions or Social Security benefits from working?
