The U.S. Department of Agriculture is proposing new rules in an effort to crack down on Food Stamp fraud.  The new rules would allow states to ask why recipients need additional Food Stamp cards.  It's estimated that 1000 cases of fraud are investigated in Oregon every month.  Gene Evans is with the Oregon Department of Human Services: “They misreport their income or they misreport the number of people who live in the home in order to get more benefits than they would legally be in titled to, and that's fraud.”  Currently, about 800,000 Oregonians get Food Stamps in Oregon.  The fraud rate is around 1%.
