Assembly passed bill limiting food stamp purchases

MADISON - The state Assembly has passed bill to limit the types of food that food stamp users could buy, including how much of their allotment can be spent on junk food.

The Assembly passed the Republican-sponsored measure on a 60-35 vote Wednesday.

The bill would require food stamp recipients to use at least two-thirds of their monthly benefits to purchase nutritional foods such as beef, chicken and produce.
