Advocacy Publishes Supplemental Comment Letter on the USDA’s Proposed Rule Providing Regulatory Flexibility in the SNAP Program
On May 28, 2019, the Office of Advocacy (Advocacy) filed comments on the United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Food and Nutrition Service’s (FNS) proposed rule. Advocacy noted that the transparency of the rule would be greatly increased if FNS provided the public with its RIA and RFA analyses which were supposed to be included in the proposed rule’s docket but were unintentionally omitted by FNS. Because of this oversight FNS subsequently published the RIA and RFA analyses on June 14, 2019 and reopened the comment period to June 20, 2019. After reviewing the RIA and RFA documents, Advocacy published a supplemental comment letter providing FNS with its thoughts on the regulatory analyses.
