FOOD STAMPS

Able-bodied adults on Wisconsin's food stamps program would have to spend at least 20 hours a week working or getting trained for a job. Those who don't meet the work requirement would be limited to three months of benefits over three years. The nonpartisan Legislative Fiscal Bureau estimates that half of the childless, able-bodied adults on the program between the ages of 18 and 50 who would be subject to the work requirement would not meet it. That is 31,300 out of 62,700.
