Bills would place new requirements on food stamp users

MADISON - Republicans have quietly introduced three bills that would require food stamp users to buy healthy food and applicants for state job training programs and unemployment benefits in certain fields to undergo drug screening.

They would be banned from purchasing crab, lobster or shrimp.
