This is the May 9, 2018 joint hearing titled "Program Integrity for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program," held before the House Subcommittee on Healthcare, Benefits, and Administrative Rules and the Subcommittee on Intergovernmental Affairs of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. From the opening statement of Jim Jordan: "The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, otherwise known as SNAP, offers assistance to millions of Americans who cannot afford nutritional food for themselves and their families. There are over 45 million Americans who rely on this program. The Food and Nutrition Service administers the program in partnership with State agencies, but nearly all the funding comes from the Federal taxpayer. In 2017, we spent over $70 billion on SNAP and other food programs. With a program of that size and that price tag, it is essential to apply the highest standards of program integrity." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Brandon Lipps, Kathy Larin, Sam Adolphsen, and Stacy Dean.
