Group: Christie Must Do More to Support Food Stamps Program

From the Burlington County Times, August 21, 2014 (subscription required):

A liberal-leaning think tank is calling on Gov. Chris Christie’s administration to do more to enroll poor residents in the federal food stamps program, and take steps to forestall cuts handed down by Congress that could result in reduced monthly benefits for thousands of New Jersey families.

The New Jersey Policy Perspective makes its case in a policy report released Wednesday morning. The report claims the state stands to lose as much as $500 million in federal money annually because of inadequate support for the food stamps program, now called the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP.
