Senate Floor Vote on FY 18 Budget Resolution Expected Next Week
October 12, 2017
As several of our food banks are working around the clock to combat the wildfires in Northern California and get much-needed food and supplied out to their communities, the full Senate is expected to bring their FY 18 budget resolution to a floor vote next week.
As currently envisioned, the tax legislation would put pressure in both the short- and long-term to cut programs like SNAP and other core programs that are vital to our network and the communities we serve.
