    Many claim H.R. 2 is "controversial because it requires all able-bodied adults between the age of 18 and 59 to work at least 20 hours per week in order to qualify for food stamps. [There is no summary of the bill yet but the full text is at the above link]

    The bill was introduced in April and reported out of committee May 3. The report is @ H. Rept. 115-661 - AGRICULTURE AND NUTRITION ACT OF 2018

    I know that somewhere out there are posters who are willing to dig through the verbage to come up with nuggets of what it's all about. I would love to read them.
