Bill to put photo IDs on food stamp cards returned to Ohio Senate committee

By Susan Tebben


The Ohio Senate will reconsider a bill regarding photo identification on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program after sending it back to committee Tuesday in the last Senate session of the calendar year.

Senate Bill 165 was re-referred back to the Rules and Reference Committee with no other explanation and no objection from the senate members.

The bill would require a color photo on the front of SNAP debit cards, also referred to as food stamps or EBT. The photo would have to be of at least one adult member of the household eligible for the nutrition assistance.

SNAP benefits are available for residents whose gross monthly income is at or below 130 percent of the federal poverty level. In 2019, that meant a family of four making less than $25,750 per year.

1. Would those ID's be official and qualify as voter ID?

Maybe the Dems could turn this into a win.

2. That's an interesting idea.

It's a government issued ID.

3. Yes. The Dems should be pushing like crazy to get these

accepted as voting ID and make sure all TANF and SNAP people have them.
