Feds assess $1.2M fine for food-stamp errors

June 25, 2010

Federal officials have assessed Indiana's human services agency $1.2 million for making too many mistakes administering food stamps last year. The U.S. Food and Nutrition service sent a letter Thursday to Secretary Anne Murphy of the Family and Social Services Administration telling her FSSA either paid too much or too little for food stamps in 7.1 percent of cases. The national average was 4.4 percent.
