  food stamp benefits to be provided to the household under the Food 
                           Stamp Act of 1977.

    Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the

SECTION 1. STATES REQUIRED TO ESTABLISH SYSTEM TO PREVENT PRISONERS 
              FROM BEING CONSIDERED PART OF ANY HOUSEHOLD UNDER THE 
              FOOD STAMP ACT OF 1977.

    (a) In General.--Section 11(e)(20) of the Food Stamp Act of 1977 (7 
U.S.C. 2020(e)(20)) is amended to read as follows:
            ``(20) that the State agency shall establish a system and 
        take action on a periodic basis--
                    ``(A) to verify and otherwise assure that an 
                individual does not receive coupons in more than one 
                jurisdiction within the State; and
                    ``(B) to verify and otherwise assure that an 
                individual who is officially detained in a 
                correctional, detention, or penal facility administered 
                under Federal or State law is not considered to be part 
                of any household participating in the food stamp 
                program, except to the extent that the Secretary 
                determines that extraordinary circumstances have made 
                it impracticable for the State agency to obtain the 
                information necessary to do so.''.
    (b) Penalty.--Section 11(g) of the Food Stamp Act of 1977 shall 
apply, in accordance with its terms, to any failure of a State agency 
to comply with section 11(e)(20)(B) of such Act.
    (c) Conforming Amendment.--Section 11(e)(8)(E) of the Food Stamp 
Act of 1977 (7 U.S.C. 2020(e)(8)(E)) is amended by inserting ``or 
(20)(B)'' after ``(16)''.
    (d) Application of Amendments.--The amendments made by this section 
shall not apply with respect to certification periods beginning before 
the end of the 1-year period that begins with the date of the enactment 
of this Act.

            Passed the House of Representatives April 8, 1997.

            Attest:
