Ok serious question...not meant to stir up shit but I have been pondering this.

Displaced families who are receiving shelter, food etc....who are currently on other government assistance...
do they continue to recieve their food stamps and welfare checks?

Yep, there was an article in the local paper today about them setting up what amounts to food stamp express lanes around TX so they can get them again ASAP.

My wife works for the state Dept. of Human Services, here in Texas, and they are sending case workers to the refugee areas in droves to help the people sign up for assistance. Food stamps, wic, you name it. The next round will be the medicare and medicade workers to sign up the elderly and infirm.

Waiting to see how the feds and the state of Louisiana helps Texas with the bills.... fullclip
