This article found on Pennlive.com dated April 29, 2012 talks about the asset test for food stamps I’m not clear when exactly it’s going into effect, the article mentioned election day, but then it also said “next week” so I’m a little confused about the timing, but I know that this is something I’ve heard a little about, just not enough to say I really know much.
