Staggered food stamp distribution bill pulled back to Senate committee

Sen. Lee Heider, R-Twin Falls, has asked the Senate to return SB 1053, the bill to stagger Idaho food stamp distributions over 10 days rather than doing them all on the 1st of the month, to the Senate Health & Welfare Committee, “for looking at again.” Asked to explain, Heider said, “We would like to make sure that the fiscal note is correct.” The Senate agreed unanimously to return the bill to the committee; it had been on the 3rd Reading Calendar for debate in the full Senate.
