"san francisco examiner" columnist melissa griffin cane joins us to help us understand how this would affect the food stamp program in california. allow it affect california? >> reporter: good morning. this $40 billion cut would be very dramatic in its effect in
6:48 am
california. essentially what happened is back in 2009, at the height of the recession, president obama suspended the three-month limit on the amount of time that single able-bodied people can receive food stamps and suspended the requirement that they work for 20 hours a week to receive the food stamps. under the philosophy that with no jobs out there it was unfair to make the job requirement. so the republican bill that just got passed last thursday could reinstate those, the time limit, work requirement and eliminate $40 billion from a fund that is used to advertise the food stamp program and get people on food stamps. in california, the way it works, the federal government gives the state money the state administers the program. our state program is called cal fresh. and each month cal fresh administers federal food stamp benefits to 3.6 million californians.
6:49 am
food policy analysts say if this bill were to take effect, 350,000 californians would lose their benefits. it would be a very dramatic effect here in california. >> okay. so republicans, house of representatives, it's passed there. but what happens now? >> the senate has also passed their own version of cuts to the food stamp program. but theirs is only about $5 billion, i say only. now here's how it works. both the senate representatives and also house of representatives representatives get together in a committee and they try to come to an agreement about exactly what the final bill is going to look like. what the republicans have done bypassing this massive, massive cuts is sort of try to move the negotiations to the right so that the ultimate result will be a higher cut. probably will not be $40 billion. it will be something though probably higher than 5. remember, though, president obama has said he will veto anything that's too dramatic when it comes to cuts to the food stamp program so there's always the possibility of that looming. also, november 1 no matter what
6:50 am
happens on capitol hill, november 1, the t.a.r.p. bump that went into effect in 2009 actually expires. so california food stamp recipients are actually going to lose anywhere between $11 and $65 a month when that expires on november 1 so that is coming up too. >> regarding the bill, when will they have a decision one way or another? >> i have learned to stop trying to predict. [ laughter ] >> washington, d.c. they may never actually depending on who gets that to the compromise committee. it's not entirely clear this has to be done before a final budget is passed so no idea when we'll get a final decision. >> thank you, melissa. remember, you can find more of her segments on and time now for a look at what's coming up on "cbs this morning." charlie rose joins us now from new york live. good morning, mr. rose. >> reporter: good morning, michelle and mr. brian. ahead we're on the scene in kenya where the mall hostage
