FOOD STAMPS
(2008-04-09)
(wgvu) - MICHIGAN IS CLOSER TO BECOMING THE FIRST
STATE IN THE NATION TO ISSUE FOOD STAMPS TWICE A MONTH.
LEGISLATION TO MAKE THE CHANGE PASSED THE HOUSE 87-19 AND IS
HEADED TO GOVERNOR GRANHOLM'S DESK.
SUPPORTERS SAY THE LEGISLATION WILL MAKE FRESH FOOD MORE
AVAILABLE THROUGHOUT THE MONTH AND HELP GROCERY STORES WITH THEIR
INVENTORY.
MICHIGAN'S 1.2 MILLION FOOD STAMP RECIPIENTS HAVE THEIR BENEFITS
ADDED TO A DEBIT CARD ONCE A MONTH, IN THE FIRST NINE DAYS OF THE
MONTH.
THAT CAUSES A RUSH TO GROCERY STORES.
THE CHANGE NEEDS FEDERAL APPROVAL.
