Florida Lawmakers to Consider Ban on Using EBT at Strip Clubs

Casinos and gun shops could also soon not accept electronic benefits cards


Florida lawmakers are considering legislation that would ban those receiving government assistance from using their electronic benefits (EBT) cards at strip clubs, casinos, liquor stores, and gun stores.

Florida's House Healthy Families Subcommittee on Wednesday approved a House bill, HB 701, introduced by Republican state Rep. Jimmie Smith to that end.
