Sponsored by CCWRO and WCL&P

This bill provides that Unemployment Insurance Benefits (UIB) benefits, for applicants applying to or receiving benefits from the Food Stamp Program (FSP), can be counted as income for purposes of FSP eligibility determination and calculation of the benefit level only if the county welfare department obtains a report from the Employment Development Department (EDD) specifying a start date and amount of the UIB; and further requires a copy of the report be provided to the FSP applicant or recipient if the county welfare department takes any action based on the report.

BILL STATUS: Vetoed by the Governor. The Veto message states that this can be done administratively.
