A group of Republican State Senators want to make the trafficking of food stamp benefits a criminal offense. Wisconsin's food stamp program, known as Food Share, paid out roughly $1.2 billion in benefits to low-income residents in 2012.

The bill also prohibits someone from reselling food purchased with Food Share benefits and also prohibits a person from buying that food on resale.
