Driving Change: Tennessee’s Call for Equitable Policies on the National Stage

Tennessee Residents Look to Congress for Fair Policy Solutions After State Legislative Session

Ensuring Equity: Advocates Urge Congress to Prioritize Tax Relief and SNAP Protections in Farm Bill Decision

According to Oakridge, after the Tennessee legislature session, Americans are worried about fair policies. They noticed some important things missing, like money for a monthlong tax break on groceries and free meals for kids in public schools. Now, the focus is on the United States Congress for solutions. One idea is the Tax Relief for American Families and Workers Act. This could help families with low incomes by giving them more money through the Child Tax Credit. With about 385,000 kids in Tennessee set to benefit, it could make a big difference for families.

Also, Congress will soon decide on the Farm Bill. This is important for fair policies, especially for programs like the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). Americans want to make sure SNAP doesn’t get less money and that rules about who can get it aren’t too strict. Keeping SNAP strong helps lots of Americans, like older folks, those who were in jail before, and families struggling with money.
