I will be appearing on WGBH-TV’s “Greater Boston” with host Emily Rooney tonight to discuss my ongoing efforts to reform the state’s Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) cards program. Joining me in the studio will be State Representative Shaunna O’Connell (R-Taunton), who was recently named to a special commission charged with investigating reported abuses within the EBT program and developing recommendations to stop this illegal activity and preserve the integrity of the system. The commission is due to report back with its findings by April 1st. Be sure to tune in to Channel 2 at 7 p.m., or watch the show when it re-airs at midnight.
