10,000 Ohioans lose food stamp benefits because of new enforcement of work requirements
Reported by: Associated Press

Thousands of poor Ohio residents have lost food stamp benefits for not fulfilling work requirements, and the number is expected to rise in the coming months.
Thousands more food-stamp recipients are expected to lose the benefits soon because they haven't gone through an assessment of whether the work rules apply to them. For some, caseworkers with large caseloads haven't finished the assessments. Other recipients haven't showed up for assessments as requested.
