    Nebraska LB 920

    in Politics

    On February 21, the Health and Human Services Committee heard testimony on a LB 920, a bill seeking to address food insecurity among vulnerable populations in Nebraska.
    Senator, Terrell McKinney, introduced the bill which would require the state Department of Health and Human Services to establish a Restaurant Meals Program.
    Under the program, elderly, disabled or homeless persons receiving SNAP benefits, could use benefits to purchase pre-made meals at below-market price from participating restaurants.
    Restaurants would contract with the department to offer meals to eligible individuals.
    My thoughts:
    While LB920 may offer convenience and flexibility policymakers need to carefully consider potential negative consequences of such a program, including the possibility of driving up food costs due to administrative costs associated with implementing such a program and other probable unfortunate consequences. 
    I can suggest options.
    I'm Calandra Cooper, candidate for Nebraska Legislative District 11.
    I'm asking for your support, as we, together, Focus Forward

About Politics

A taboo topic for the dinner table and social gatherings, politics both unite and divide our world. Especially every four years. BlogTalkRadio's Election coverage is vast, varied and accurate: We know it's not always the pundits with the best insight on today's political climate; our hosts represent the voice of the people, by the people, for the people. Whether you fall on the Conservative end of the spectrum, the Progressive, are moderate or somewhere on the many shades in between, you'll find plenty of commiseration with those who share your views, some of which are famous dignitaries like Michelle Obama and Kofi Annan, or famous actors, authors, news reporters, TV personalities, even comedians. The best part? If you've got something to say, you can start your own show! Go on, hop up on that soapbox and have at it – speak your mind, rant, rave and filibuster to your heart's content.
