Roberts Will Hold Hearings on Food Stamp Block Grants

U.S. Senator Pat Roberts of Kansas says he’ll hold hearings in Washington over a proposal to change the way federal funds for food stamps are delivered. Governor Sam Brownback is advocating a change to block grant funding to give states more flexibility.  But federal administrator Audrey Rowe says a block grant system would pose major problems.
 


Roberts chairs the Senate Agriculture Committee, which oversees food stamps.  He’s neither for nor against the idea, but thinks a unified federal system has merits.
