An attempt to collect scattered thoughts (and lower the bar to posting)
Great way to end the week Dave. The TX story is both horrifying and encouraging ... what will the Governor do? do they have a state auditor or IG? I am VERY intrigued by the potential for AI to help people navigate the complexities of applying for SNAP, housing, UI etc. I look forward to learning more.
Do you know if there are problems in SNAP processing outside of just Texas, and what the best data sources would be to understand this? https://www.fns.usda.gov/snap/fy-2022-reported-application-processing-timeliness seems to suggest that Texas isn’t even the worst here, although I don’t know if there are better/other metrics that track these things.
