Action 4 Investigation leads to national debate
An Action 4 News investigation into the food stamp system exposes big problems.
The story reported by Action 4 News Anchor Joey Horta captured national attention after a tax payer revealed what he claims is abuse of the system.
The clerk came forward with a Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program or SNAP account balance of more than $7,000.
According to the Texas Health and Human Services Commission, known by many as food stamps, SNAP balances rollover from month to month indefinitely.
