I tested this in a trusty lxc. Updated sudo to 1.8.9p5-1ubuntu1.3 and:

# mkdir -p /snap/bin
# cp $(which echo) /snap/bin/echo-test
# su ubuntu
$ sudo echo-test test
test

I'm marking it as verified. Thanks Brian.

  sudo doesn't have /snap/bin in PATH

Bug description:
  [ SRU Justification ]
  Snap may contain sysadmin tools as well. They are currently hard to invoke
  because /snap/bin is not in the PATH when sudo is used because the default
  secure_path of sudoers does not have it.

  [ SRU Test Case ]
  1. sudo snap install hello-world
  2. sudo hello-world
  3. verify that this fails with "command not found"
  4. install sudo from xenial-proposed
  5. verify that sudo hello-world now works

  [ Regression Potential ]
  - may trigger conffile prompts on upgrade

  [Original report]
  $ nextcloud.occ
  # prints output

  $ sudo nextcloud.occ
  sudo: nextcloud.occ: command not found

  I need to do `sudo /snap/bin/nextcloud.occ` if I want it to run.

  $ sudo env | grep PATH
  PATH=/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin
