Governor Jim Justice recently signed a bill that would require some able-bodied SNAP recipients to either work or volunteer 20 hours a week.

On this week's Front Porch podcast, Rick Wilson argues this new requirement won't lead more people to work, and will hurt families and West Virginia'e economy.

Meanwhile, Jessi Troyan argues there are deeper economic forces at play making it hard for SNAP recipients to find work.

Also, we discuss the passage of the noodling bill. What's noodling? Rick Wilson demonstrates.
