The state’s welfare department is unveiling new rules in the wake of news stories outlining outrageously high balances on EBT cards. Commissioner Stacey Monahan says recipients with cash balances exceeding $2,500 will have their accounts closed. She says people who accumulate more than $5,000 on their food stamp cards will be personally contacted to make sure they still need help. Monahan says the changes will ensure welfare only goes to the truly needy.
