"Cut in food stamp benefits coming to over 130,000 Montanans," Montana Standard, August 8, 2013.

“This increase in SNAP benefits has meant tens of thousands of families in Montana do not have to choose between buying medicine or cooking dinner, keeping the lights on or feeding kids breakfast,” Semmens said. “As we are still climbing out of the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, now is not the time to cut back on a program that benefits Montana workers, families and economy.”
