9. Thanks for the update - from the article
Three days later, Caswell (a Republican) changed his proposal. As a statement on his website says, "he plans to draft an amendment to the proposal that would direct the state to work with major retailers to create a gift card program that would ensure the clothing allowance money only purchases clothing and shoes at their stores. Furthermore, the amendment will direct DHS to negotiate with the retailers for a discount on those clothing items purchased with the allowance in order to get the best deal for the recipients."

"My sole goal in this proposal is to make sure that children receive the clothing allowance that the state has provided for them and not have it used for anything else," Caswell also said in the statement.
