Walker Signs Food Stamp Trafficking Bill

Written by

MADISON, Wis. (AP) Gov. Scott Walker has signed into law a measure designed to help crack down on food stamp trafficking.

The bill that passed with bipartisan support in the Legislature would expand definitions in state law of what constitutes illegal food stamp trafficking. Walker signed it privately in the Capitol on Monday.

The law brings Wisconsin into line with the federal government's new expanded definition of food stamp trafficking. That refers to the illegal buying, selling or transferring of food stamp benefits for cash or other unlawful purposes. Trafficking occurs in most cases when food stamp recipients sell their benefit cards online and in the open market and then apply for free replacements.

In any given month about 15 percent of Wisconsin's population, or 850,000 people, receive food stamp benefits.

To Wed Or Not To Wed

Written by

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Minnesota churches are deciding whether or not to perform gay marriage ceremonies with Minnesota's law about to change. Gay marriage becomes legal August 1. One United Methodist minister with a long history on the issue won't be able to perform gay weddings.

Roger Lynn is a retired Methodist pastor who lives north of Brainerd. In 1971, he performed a wedding ceremony for two Minneapolis men whose legal fight to get married was among the nation's first. But after his actions were publicized, the United Methodist Church defined marriage as between a man and woman only.

That church rule still stands today. Lynn says he's disappointed he won't be able to perform any more gay weddings, but doesn't want to risk his pension.

The La Crosse County Board takes a big step toward selling the old courthouse...

By an 18-to-5 vote, the board decided last night to accept a 250-thousand dollar offer from two developers who want to turn the Administrative Center into a college dorm. But that doesn't mean the sale is final. Thursday's vote opens the door to negotiations with the developers, which could take weeks or months. Some opponents of the sale argue that the county is 'fast-tracking' the deal, with supervisor Ralph Geary calling the six-figure offer 'ridiculously low.' Backers of the plan point out that the dorm offer is the only offer the county has received for the 50-year-old building.
