LANSING (WKZO) -- Legislation to crack down on Bridge Card abuse in Michigan continues to be pushed in Lansing. StateRepresentative Gail Haines, of Waterford, says that she has a bill to stiffen penalties for retailers engaging in Bridge Card fraud.

Businesses would lose their ability to complete Bridge Card transactions for 30 days after a first offense, and permanently after a second offense.Lawmakers say they want to protect the state's food assistance program for those who truly need help, and save money by preventing abuse by those who use it inappropriately.
