Wisconsin Legislative Proposal Seeks To Penalize Food Stamp Trafficking
A proposal that would penalize acts of trafficking food stamp benefits is moving forward quickly in the Wisconsin Legislature.
The proposal by Republican Rep. Samantha Kerkman makes it illegal to buy, sell or transfer food stamp benefits for cash and unlawful purposes.
A Senate committee is scheduled to vote on the measure Friday. An Assembly committee approved it 5-2 on Thursday. It is scheduled to be taken up by the full Assembly next Tuesday.
