NATSO Outlines SNAP Concerns to USDA
Added on: July 11, 2019
NATSO has written a letter to the Department of Agriculture (USDA) urging the agency to reconsider proposed changes to the application form that retailers must submit to redeem SNAP benefits. The proposed updates to the form included specific references to sales data of particular product categories (such as tobacco and alcohol). NATSO's letter expressed concern that USDA is requiring retailers to provide more information than is necessary, and urged USDA to revise the form to avoid dissuading travel centers from participating in SNAP.
