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.)
OTOH, boy it sucks to be poor now. Really, really sucks. And unemployed, in a time of double digit unemployment.
