Gov. Nixon announces withdrawal of proposed rule to modify the state’s waiver under SNAP

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. - Gov. Jay Nixon today announced that he has directed the Missouri Department of Social Services to withdraw a proposed rule to modify Missouri’s existing waiver under the federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).

“Ensuring state-administered food assistance programs operate as effectively and efficiently as possible is an important priority of my administration,” Gov. Nixon said. “With greater certainty about what the federal funding level for the food stamp program will be after last week’s budget agreement, we have made a determination that the appropriate course of action is to maintain the policy that is currently in place.”
