No taxpayer dollars for strippers or gambling

Thank you to State Rep. Matt Baker, R-Tioga, for sponsoring an amendment to prohibit the use of electronic benefit (EBT) cards at liquor stores, casinos and strip clubs.

The amendment was to HB 907, a bill prohibiting the EBT cards from being used for tobacco purchases, introduced by State Rep. Mike Reese (R-Fayette).

Thank you to Rep. Baker and all those who voted for the amendment for seeking to protect the limited taxpayer resources for the poor in our state.
