§610. Food stamp program coupons (a) Option to deduct charges from aid

Any State plan for aid and services to needy families with children may (but is not required under this subchapter or any other provision of Federal law to) provide for the institution of procedures, in any or all areas of the State, by the State agency administering or supervising the administration of such plan under which any household participating in the food stamp program established by the Food Stamp Act of 1977, as amended [7 U.S.C. 2011 et seq.], will be entitled, if it so elects, to have the charges, if any, for its coupon allotment under such program deducted from any aid, in the form of money payments, which is (or, except for the deduction of such charge, would be) payable to or with respect to such household (or any member or members thereof) under such plan and have its coupon allotment distributed to it with such aid.

(b) Deductions not considered payment

Any deduction made pursuant to an option provided in accordance with subsection (a) of this section shall not be considered to be a payment described in section 606(b)(2) of this title.

(c) Failure to adopt procedures

Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no agency which is designated as a State agency for any State under or pursuant to the Food Stamp Act of 1977, as amended [7 U.S.C. 2011 et seq.], shall be regarded as having failed to comply with any requirement imposed by or pursuant to such Act solely because of the failure, of the State agency administering or supervising the administration of the State plan (approved under this part) of such State, to institute or carry out a procedure, described in subsection (a) of this section.
