Grisanti Calls on Assembly to Immediately Pass “Public Assistance Integrity Act”

Senator Mark Grisanti (R, I-Buffalo) has called on New York State Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver to bring the ‘Public Assistance Integrity Act’ to the floor for a vote immediately or risk of losing $120 million in federal aid.

New York State must show the federal government, through legislative action, how it is going to prevent welfare fraud and abuse from EBT (Electronic Benefit Transfer) cards. If the state does not act, New York will stand to lose more than $120 million in federal Temporary Aid to Needy Families (TANF). The deadline is Saturday, February 22.
