Approved: Assembly passes bill that would limit what food stamp recipients can purchase

MADISON (AP) — The state Assembly has passed bill to limit the types of food that food stamp users could buy, including how much of their allotment can be spent on junk food.

The Assembly passed the Republican-sponsored measure on a 60-35 vote Wednesday.

The bill would require food stamp recipients to use at least two-thirds of their monthly benefits to purchase nutritional foods such as beef, chicken and produce.

Republican supporters say they want to prevent people on taxpayer-funded public assistance from spending their money on junk food.

“A lot of people, an awful lot of people who are on FoodShare are also on BadgerCare, so there is a direct financial benefit not just to the individual, which of course is obvious to have better health, but also to state taxpayers and society as a whole,” Rep. Robin Vos (R-Rochester) said.

Users would also be barred from buying crab, lobster, shrimp and other shellfish.

The change would require a federal waiver, which no state has ever received.

The Assembly passed a similar bill last session but it never got a vote in the Senate.

 

Maria Hamilton heads to D.C. to lead Million Moms March

MILWAUKEE —The mother of a Milwaukee man shot and killed by police is heading to Washington, D.C.

Maria Hamilton boarded a bus Friday, along with dozens of supporters, to lead the Million Moms March.

The march is designed to support mothers across the country who have lost children at the hands of police officers.

Dontre Hamilton died one year ago after a confrontation in Milwaukee’s Red Arrow Park.

Officer Christopher Manney was fired after Police Chief Ed Flynn determined Manney went against his training and performed an unnecessary pat down procedure. Flynn determined that pat down led to the deadly confrontation between Dontre Hamilton and Manney.

Maria Hamilton said she wants to shed light on the issue of police-involved shootings.

“My mission is to make people aware that this is a bigger problem than anybody actually thought,” she said. “Now that the doors have come open, we want the doors to stay open until things start to get fixed.”

WISN 12 News This Morning anchor Melinda Davenport will be in Washington, D.C. covering the Million Moms March. Watch for her reports this weekend on WISN 12 News.

Which Type of Stocks You Should Trade?

You can make a lot of profits through stock market trading but only if you know what type of stocks you should trade. There are various reasons behind everyone for trading stocks. There are people who simply have it as their hobby and there are the ones who trade in order to make some extra money. The professional traders and investors are in the stock market to make their entire living. You cannot just jump in to the stock market; you need to know that there is not a single proven way that will assure that you will make profits. Investing in the stock means that you are ready to take some risks and if you do not know what type of stocks to invest in; you might lose money.
If you are a beginner than taking assistance from a fulltime broker would be wise; they will help you in understanding the market better and knowing the profitable stocks. You need to perform an analysis, make reports, and keep a check over your portfolio. Once you learn completely how to read stock charts and pick the right stocks; you are on your way to invest successfully. Once you are ready to be on your own; a discount broker can replace the full time one.
You should always research over what stocks to invest in. stocks have a history of their own that never changes. This is how the entire works; there is a trend of boom after recession and recession after every boom. However, make sure that you invest in those stocks that carry value in their past record. There are companies that are not doing well from the very start; investing in such stocks would surely loss you money since there is no value to such stocks. You should always buy certain stocks when their prices are low and people are selling them quickly; the prices will raise back up soon enough and you will make profits out of them.
Also, many investors in the market make one common mistake that you should avoid; do not hold on to any stock even if it is giving you good profit and increasing in value. The reason behind this is every such stock that is going up high suddenly falls down so you need to let go of it and take your earning when it is at the peak rather than losing all what you could have made.
