BILL NUMBER:S452 REVISED 05/09/12 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the social services law, in relation to distribution of federal bonus awards relative to food stamp programs to local social services districts SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: This bill would add a new subdivision 12 to Section 95 of the Social Services Law to allow the Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance to restrict the use or retain 5% of the total award of any federal Food Stamp bonuses when distributing such bonuses to local social services district It would permit OTDA to retain or place restrictions on more than 5% of the funds, if it consults with local social services districts in determining the use of funds. Further, the distribution formula used to distribute the remaining funds to local social services districts would be based on each local district's contribution towards acquiring the bonus. These funds could be spent by the local district for any food and nutrition purpose consistent with the districts legal authority. JUSTIFICATION: Currently, the state has the discretion to determine how Federal Food Stamp bonus awards are allocated to local districts. Although the state has historically passed on a majority of bonus money to local districts to used at their own discretion, it has recently changed its practice.
