Officials meet today to reduce delays in approving food stamp benefits
Officials will meet again today to work on reducing the delays in approving food stamp benefits in Wisconsin.
The state says almost two-thirds of the 45,000 low-income people applying for Food-Share cards from mid-June through mid-October had to wait longer than the 30-day limit for their requests to be processed.
And in Milwaukee County alone, 1,400 people have had to wait more than three months.
The problem was first made public two weeks ago.
