  1. I think that this bill should fail. As a TN recipient of foodstamps, I know that they are barely enough to feed one for a few weeks even if on junk related items. If you think that this will be of benefit I implore you to execute the bill and then keep eyes on your crime rates. As they will rise out the roof when you take the only sufficiently and less costly food items away.
