Ohio to limit food stamps for some adults

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The administration of Ohio Gov. John Kasich (KAY'-sik) plans to limit food stamps for more than 130,000 adults in all but a few economically depressed areas starting next year.

According to The (Columbus) Dispatch (bit.ly/1aeYDC9), the requirement will cover able-bodied adults without children.

They will be required to spend at least 20 hours a week working, training for a job, volunteering or performing a similar type of activity unless they live in 1 of 16 high-unemployment counties.

The requirements begin next month but those failing to meet them would not lose benefits until Jan. 1.

More than 1.8 million Ohioans receive food stamps.

The exempt counties are Adams, Brown, Clinton, Coshocton (kuh-SHAHK'-tuhn), Highland, Huron, Jefferson, Meigs (meggs), Monroe, Morgan, Muskingun, Noble, Ottawa, Perry, Pike and Scioto (sy-OH'-tuh).
