SNAP AND THE CITI — SNAP recipients who want to opt into the newly expanded discounted Citi Bike program may have problems accessing the service. Geographic and financial barriers are likely to hinder hundreds of thousands of SNAP recipients over the age of 16 from subscribing to a $5 monthly Citi Bike membership. The discount, which is already available to New York City Housing Authority residents, provides an unlimited number of 45-minute rides. But unlike NYCHA residents, who live in known neighborhoods, enrollees in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program are dispersed across the city, according to data from the city's social services department. The city touted that this program will help improve the health of residents — the city's health commissioner said the program "is about more than increasing transportation options; it is also about improving the health of all New Yorkers" — yet has come up short on bringing stations to neighborhoods with a high volume of SNAP enrollees.

WHAT ABOUT DWQC? — Environmental advocates continue to wonder when the state will reschedule a meeting for a group tasked with recommending limits to emerging drinking water contaminants. A meeting was supposed to take place four months ago, but it was abruptly called off. Advocates note that New Jersey moved ahead months ago on setting strict "maximum contaminant limits" on such chemicals. "I'm confused as to why this is taking so long," said Kimberly Ong, a staff attorney at the Natural Resources Defense Council. "We have contamination issues all across the state, and other states have already acted."
... The Drinking Water Quality Council, a body composed of state officials and outside experts, met three times between October and February to discuss potential maximum levels of PFOA, PFOS and 1,4-dioxane. The council was supposed to meet on March 19, but the meeting was canceled over "last-minute scheduling conflicts" from several members only hours before it was set to begin. More from Nick here.

SUNY — The board of trustees of the State University's construction fund approved about $9.5 million in new or updated projects today at its July meeting in Albany. The projects include $5.6 million to renovate the 10th floor of SUNY College of Optometry for a pediatric clinic. The board also increased the maximum cost of construction management services for projects at SUNY's Health Science Center at Stony Brook due to project delays. The increase — from $16 million to $16,842,498 — is for construction of a medical and research translation building, new beds and a support tower.

WHAT WE'RE READING:
UNWORKABLE — President Donald Trump handed an influential business advocacy group what should have been a historic lobbying victory when he recently rolled out new rules encouraging small businesses to band together to offer health insurance. Trump, who's touted the expansion of so-called association health plans as a key plank in his strategy to tear down Obamacare, even announced the rules at the 75th anniversary party of the National Federation of Independent Business last month, claiming the group's members will save "massive amounts of money" and have better care if they join forces to offer coverage to workers. But the NFIB, which vigorously promoted association health plans for two decades, now says it won't set one up, describing the new Trump rules as unworkable. Read more from POLITICO here.

BE YOUR OWN DOCTOR — The New York Times reports: "To rein in emergency medicine costs, Anthem is reviving an old, contentious tactic: pushing back on patients who visit the emergency room for ailments deemed minor. Anthem denied thousands of claims last year under its "avoidable E.R. program," according to a sample of emergency room bills analyzed by the American College of Emergency Physicians. The program, which Anthem has been rolling out in a handful of states in recent years, reviews claims based on the final diagnosis of patients." Read more here.

PED PANIC — The abuse of steroids and other performance enhancing drugs is viewed as a stain on baseball, throwing uncertainty around the hall of fame candidacies of generational talents like Mark McGwire and Barry Bonds. Then again, maybe it wasn't so bad. "Today, the PED panic looks more and more like the last gasp of a fading generational outrage, an emotional outburst and response to an increasingly wonkish and data-driven world: It feels more like Baby Boomers pounding their fists angry that it's not 1961 anymore and athletes are not powered by Ovaltine the way they were told when they were 12," writes Will Leitch for New York magazine.
