Discussing EBT Fraud

Yesterday I had the opportunity to discuss with Fox 25 Morning News Anchor Shannon Mulaire actions taken by the legislature to limit the abuse of electronic benefit transfer cards (EBT Cards) and additional steps I have proposed. Posted below is yesterday’s segment.

Also, in today’s edition of the Gloucester Daily Times is an editorial discussing the need to increase accountability of state welfare programs. The editorial highlights a bill that I filed that would tighten the oversight of the EBT Cards program. To read today’s editorial please click here.
