Full Text Of Proposed SNAP Changes

More than one in five New Mexicans is on food stamps—almost half a million people. With the proposed SNAP rule changes, a larger age group—16 to 60—would be required to look for jobs, undergo job training or volunteer for community service. And parents of children aged 6 or older would just have to conduct job searches.

The rules could affect about 80,000 people and would be implemented in two stages: People without kids would be affected in October, and parents would be subject to the rules in March.
