Imagine being able to use your SNAP card at Texas Roadhouse or even Whataburger.

Could a new program introduced by SNAP allow Texans to use their SNAP card at their favorite restaurants?

According to the USDA - RMP is an initiative that allows low-income households with seniors disabled or homeless members to use their benefits to purchase discounted meals from authorizing restaurants.
SNAP recipients in Arizona, California, Rhode Island and now New York are participating in the new program and you have to figure states like Texas may next in line.

Reportedly, A USDA spokesperson said states considering implementing an RMP, such as Texas, must weigh whether they would be able to target those most vulnerable and provide them with access to prepare meals

Monday, the governor of New York signed a bill establishing state-wide participation.

The recipient should know that you have to meet eligibility criteria to purchase meals at authorized restaurants

KWTX says the USDA had a total of 3,054 for restaurants that were authorized to redeem snap benefits in 2020

Texas' Top 15 Pro Athletes from the Past 25 Years in No Particular Order

Texas' Top 15 Pro Athletes from the Past 25 Years in No Particular Order

These are, in my opinion, the Top 15 Professional athletes from the past 25 years.

Of course, we'll start with the Dallas Cowboys (of course we will) and go from there.

The NFL's most prized franchise won 3 World Championships in the 1990s in 1992, 1993, and 1995.

Those teams saw numerous Hall Of Fame coaches and players from Jimmy Johnson, Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith, and Michael Irvin. 

You can't forget about the dynasty the San Antonio Spurs had that started in the late 90s and came into the 200s as an NBA Powerhouse winning 5 NBA Championships led by players such as David Robinson, Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobli, Tony Parker, and in their later years Kawhi Leonard.

What about that 2011 Dallas Mavericks team that gave Dallas their first-ever NBA Championship under the leadership of Dirk Nowitski, Jason Kidd, Jason Terry and company?

We definitely can't deny new superstar Luka Doncic and the Mavericks of today inching closer and closer to becoming a dominant West Coast Team.

I would be foolish not to mention those Houston Rockets teams that repeated as NBA Champions in the mid-90s, (I did say past 25 years right?) and the James Harden led team, who along with Chris Paul boosted the Rockets to the playoffs year after year ultimately leading them to the Western Conference Finals.

Here are my top 15..
