The Need for ID Law for Food Stamp Purchases

According to Salmon, in 2009 $2.2 billion in benefits were erroneously handed out, according to a report by the Government Accountability Office. Salmon believes that requiring photo ID confirmation at the time of purchase would alleviate this problem and help create better oversight of this program. As of now, the bill is supported strongly by Republicans, including Reps. Bill Posey, R-Fla., David Schweikert, R-Ariz., Trent Franks, R-Ariz., and Jack Kingston, R-Ga.
