The Food and Nutrition Service is delaying the effective date for the interim final rule published in the Federal Register on Oct. 3, 2022, SNAP: Requirement for Interstate Data Matching to Prevent Duplicate Issuances.
The Food and Nutrition Service published the interim final rule, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program: Requirement for Interstate Data Matching to Prevent Duplicate Issuances, in the Federal Register at 87 FR 59633 on Oct. 3, 2022. Pursuant to the Congressional Review Act (5 USC 801 et seq.), the Office of Management and Budget Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs has designated this as a major rule, as defined by 5 USC 804(2).
The Congressional Review Act (CRA) requires a 60-day delay in the effective date of a major rule from the date of publication in the Federal Register or receipt of the rule by Congress, whichever is later (5 USC 801(a)(3)(A)). The rule was published on Oct. 3, 2022, and Congress received the interim final rule on October 6, 2022. Therefore, the effective date is extended by four days to Dec. 6, 2022, which is at least 60 days from Congress' receipt of the interim final rule.
For this reason, the Food and Nutrition Service is delaying the effective date of the interim final rule that published Oct. 3, 2022, at 87 FR 59633 until Dec. 6, 2022.
