Bill with work requirement for some food stamp recipients advances



Legislation that would require some food stamp recipients to work at least 20 hours a week has narrowly passed the House and Human Resources Committee.

The bill would apply to people 18 to 49 who aren't disabled, have no children and get supplemental nutrition assistance program benefits.

Opponents of the bill believe it will push struggling people out of the program and increase demand on food pantries.
