Auditor of State Dave Yost, Rep. Tim Schaffer and Sen. Matt Huffman discuss new legislation designed to curb fraud in Ohio's Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), also known as the food stamp program.
The legislation includes measures to prevent unauthorized use of SNAP Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) cards, such as a requirement for photographs of recipients on cards.
This past June, an audit of Ohio's $2.5 billion SNAP program found system weaknesses that allow for benefits of the dead to be claimed, accounts to build excessive balances, questionable out-of-state transactions and other instances of potential fraud.
Also Joining the discussion is Senate President Larry Obhof.
