Republican Lawmakers Want Food Stamp Recipients Tested for Shellfish

“Republican proposals now being advanced which would subject Food Stamp and government aid recipients to random testing for shellfish consumption. The test is said to be able to detect the presence of lobster, crab, scallops and fried calamari appetizers.


(Note: Florida is the only Republican controlled state to balk at shellfish detection after the ‘Florida Sea Food Advisory Council’ announced that it would have a negative impact on sales, while in Wisconsin, lawmakers added that current residents receiving food aid, should be restricted in their cheese selections, to Wisconsin cheeses only).” [Source]
