On Monday, the Supreme Court ruled in a 5-4 vote to allow the Trump administration’s public charge rule to take effect while litigation is ongoing. The rule expands the type of public assistance that can be viewed disfavorably in a public charge determination. Most notably, this includes Medicaid, food stamps and housing vouchers, among other types of aid. The rule officially takes effect on February 24, 2020.
