West Monroe -- Louisiana Senator David Vitter says he's happy to see the state moving to disqualify some EBT recipients who knowingly stole groceries exceeding their food stamp limits during an outage in October.

"I'm really happy the state has now accepted my strong suggestion to disqualify food stamp beneficiaries who broke the law – committed theft and fraud – during this egregious case a few weeks ago,” Vitter said. “I still think these folks should be criminally prosecuted in egregious cases, and that’s not happening yet.”
