We discussed a draft of this report with Food and Nutrition Service officials; because
much of the information in the report was taken from our survey of food stamp
directors in the 51 states (including the District of Columbia), they had no comments.
As agreed with your offices, unless you publicly announce its contents earlier, we
plan no further distribution of this report until 30 days from the date of this letter. At
that time we will send a copy of this report to the Honorable Dan Glickman,
Secretary of Agriculture and the Honorable Donna E. Shalala, Secretary of the
Department of Health and Human Services. We will also make copies available to
others upon request.
Please contact me at (202) 512-5138 or Robert Summers at (404) 679-1839 if you or
your staff have any questions about the information presented in this report.
