Making it easier to get benefits

Lone Star CardStateline has an interesting article (“States retool food stamp, benefits systems“) about how Texas and other states are getting rid of fingerprinting or similar requirements for getting benefits like “food stamps” (SNAP is the new name for the food program in Texas). It turned out that the new security features were costing more to implement than they realized in savings.

By the way, if you’re curious about what kind of benefits are provided by the state or it takes to get these benefits you can check out the state’s website: Your Texas Benefits.
