Other Budget Issues

Last Updated: 1/29/2010
Budget Issue: Reduce monthly grants for SSI/SSP individuals to the federal minimum.
Program: SSI/SSP
Finding or Recommendation: Adopt the Governor's proposal to reduce grants to the federal minimum (a reduction of 1.8 percent). This would result in General Fund savings of $14 million in 2009-10 and $178 million in 2010-11. The Legislature should also consider the option to make SSI/SSP recipients eligible for federal food stamps.
