LANSING (WKZO) -- It's been discussed for weeks, and now legislation banning Bridge Card holders from using the food stamp card at certain ATMs is headed to the state Senate.  The House voted overwhelmingly Thursday in favor of a four-bill package banning the cards from being used in an ATM at strip clubs, casinos and liquor stores.

Detroit Democrat Rose Mary Robinson voted against the bills, noting in her district, there are some neighborhoods where the only ATMs are in liquor stores and people don't have a nearby bank or grocery store to use.
