Make Two Phone Calls on A1681A/S6291
The NY State Senate passed a bill (S6291) that would eliminate the finger imaging requirement for food stamps. The bill was amended as it underwent debate in the Assembly (A1681A).
Now, both the Senate and Assembly have to get the bill to a vote in special session. To ensure they do so, email or call both your State Senator and Assemblyman and tell them:
"Hello, my name is _____ and I am calling in support of A1681A/S6291. This bill simplifies the food stamp application process by removing an expensive and ineffective barrier in the application process. I urge (Rep's name)to get this bill to a vote in special session on behalf of the 1.4 million New Yorkers who live in homes that cannot afford enough food."
