According to NKY Tribune, Kentucky schools are worried about House Bill 367, which wants to make it harder for people to get SNAP benefits. House Bill 367 would make it so only families with very low incomes can get help.

Concerns Over House Bill 367‘s Potential Impact on Kentucky Students

People are against House Bill 367 because they think it will cause big problems for schools and kids. Jay Brewer, who runs Dayton Independent Schools, is worried about how it will affect SNAP enrollment and a program that gives free meals to students. If House Bill 367 passes over 21,000 students in Kentucky could lose SNAP benefits and that might make it harder for them to get enough food, especially if they depend on school meals. Even though some people say House Bill 367 will save money and help those who need it others think it will hurt kids in Kentucky. Right now, House Bill 367l is stuck in a Senate committee but it could still become a law. People want to make sure they understand how it might affect kids and find ways to help them get enough food.
