I had to look up that MN bill - that sounds insane! But really, it's a prohibition against withdrawing more than $20 cash from Minnesota Family Investment Program funds a month - mostly because people have used the funds on cruises, in casinos & for booze & cigarettes - which fine, buy your own poison but not out of taxpayer funds. (I'm open to reconsidering that stance when someone underwrites my yarn purchases.)
