Looks as if the State of Michigan isn’t having it anymore.  NO more bridgecard abuse going on. IF you are a college student is looks as if you will not be able to get a bridge card solely because you are a college student come April.  I think it a good idea because the State needs all the money they can save.  We hurting in Michigan.

College students will no longer be able to take advantage of taxpayer-paid food assistance unless there is a true need, state leaders said today, cracking down on a problem lawmakers say costs taxpayers millions of dollars a year.

Under federal guidelines, college students do not qualify for food assistance except in very limited circumstances. Attending college by itself is not an approved exception, a policy the department will enforce starting in April, state Human Services Department director Maura D. Corrigan announced today.

“We’re ready to extend a helping hand to any citizen who is truly in need – including college students who care for young children and are taking the right steps toward becoming self-sufficient,” Corrigan said is a news release. “But those who don’t meet federal guidelines won’t be able to take advantage of what is meant to be a temporary safety net program.”
