The 1996 welfare reform law required all states to implement debit-like cards, known as ebt cards, no later than October 1, 2002.
Or perhaps ebt programs could permit the purchase of ethical items based on a sliding price scale.
The administration has, to be sure, signed on to some ebt restrictions.
JP Morgan is currently involved in an eight-month pilot project with Florida focused on ebt fraud and abuse.
In addition, most states allow ebt processors to charge card replacement fees.
Meanwhile, a 2011 investigation by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel uncovered widespread selling of Wisconsin ebt cards on Facebook.
