Major changes could be coming soon for two groups of people receiving food stamps — certain convicted criminals and winners of large lottery prizes will be banned from collecting benefits.

The Department of Agriculture just published a series of proposed rules that would enforce laws passed by Congress nearly three years ago.

The rules also mandate that each state have a system in place to verify immigration status and income of people who apply for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits, also called food stamps, Daily Caller reports.

The rules were mandated by the last Farm Bill, signed into law Feb. 7, 2014, which authorizes federal spending for the welfare program.

Currently, each state agency that distributes food stamps has the option of using verification systems to determine eligibility of SNAP applicants. Under the proposed rules, each agency will be required to create an automated system to better determine the immigration status and income of applicants for food stamps.

Existing rules already prohibit “fleeing felons and probation or parole violators from obtaining SNAP benefits,” but now anyone convicted as an adult of murder or aggravated sexual assault will be barred from receiving food stamps.

Conservative Tribune reports that Section 4008 of the bill prohibits anyone convicted of federal aggravated sexual abuse, murder, sexual exploitation and abuse of children, sexual assault, or similar offenses under state laws, as well as those who are not in compliance with the terms of their sentence or parole or are fleeing felons, from receiving food stamps.

Section 4009 prohibited households containing a member with substantial lottery and gambling winnings from receiving food stamps until the household met the allowable financial resources and income eligibility requirements of the program.

Under the USDA’s proposed rules, if an individual wins $25,000 or more from the lottery (before taxes), his or her entire household would be ineligible to receive to receive food stamps until the household income falls within eligible range again.

In addition to these major updates, the proposed rules also mandated that each state have a system in place to verify the immigration status and income of anyone who applies for food stamps.

More than 44 million Americans were reportedly receiving food stamps as of Nov. 10, 2016, according to U.S. Department of Agriculture data.
