A state senate committee approved a bill that could make it more difficult for some Oklahomans to get food stamps.
The bill requires able bodied Oklahomans, ages 18-50 and without children to work at least 20 hours a week to qualify for food stamps.
Opponents say the bill hurts safety nets for people with low income. The bill now goes to the full senate.
