Modernize Texas’s SNAP Vehicle Limit: A Critical Step to Help Working Texans Feed Their Families

Testimony

This testimony was submitted to the Texas Senate Committee on Health and Human Services during the 87th Texas Legislature on April 28, 2021.

This document expresses UnidosUS support for the bipartisan committee substitute to SB 1914 by Senator Blanco (D-El Paso), which addresses some of the key barriers that currently exist with the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) Vehicle Asset Test. Modernizing the SNAP vehicle limit would ensure that working families that need food assistance can access it without needing to jeopardize their means of transportation and their livelihood. It would also ensure that Texans, including Hispanics, can continue making vital contributions to the states’s ability to function.
