Action Alert: Urge Your Member of Congress to Vote No on House Budget Resolution That Would Cut SNAP

The FY2017 Budget Resolution voted out of the House Budget Committee last week threatens severe budget cuts to essential federal programs serving low-income families and individuals and proposes to block grant SNAP (through a “State Flexibility Fund”). If enacted, these changes would mean more hunger and deeper poverty for very vulnerable people, including families with children, elderly people, and people with disabilities. 
Take Action Now: Urge your House Member to vote no when the budget resolution goes to the House floor, likely after spring recess.

Call your member's office through the US Capitol Switchboard: 202-224-3121.
For those who are in St. Lawrence County, this would be Representative Elise Stefanik.  Her direct office number is (202) 225-4611
