Planned Restrictions on Food Assistance for Unpaid Child Support Have Been Scrapped by Legislators.

On Monday, lawmakers withdrew a proposal to deny food stamps to Indiana residents who owe back child support.

A proposed measure was downgraded to the status of a research committee topic by a Senate committee.

Child support arrears would no longer be eligible for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits under HB 1354.

Opponents of the policy argue that it does more harm than good for low-income residents of Indiana. Snap benefits, according to Indiana PTA President Rachel Burke, are basically about feeding kids.

Burke expressed grave worries about the use of food as a weapon against children.
