No one in Wisconsin is going to miss out on extra food stamp money.
Governor Evers yesterday said he’s reached an agreement with the USDA to keep the state eligible for the extra benefits. Wisconsin lost its eligibility when the state Supreme Court struck down the governor’s emergency order late last month. In the two week since, the state’s Department of Health Services issued new rules to maintain eligibility. In fact, the new rules mean Wisconsin will see more benefits. Originally, the state was eligible for 50-million-dollars a month, now the state will receive 70-million a month.
