NewsChannel 13 has new information for people who receive benefits through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program.
Starting November 1st, each of you will be getting $11 less each month.
That is because the American Recovery and Reinvestment act is expiring.
Congress passed the act in 2009 to provide people on SNAP with a temporary boost to offset the economic downturn.
