HB 124: Public assistance; fraud; revisions

Voted on Tuesday February 28, 2017

John Pezold's thoughts

This legislation address public assistance fraud. It specifically adds Medicaid and food stamps into the code section where currently only public assistance exists.

Additionally, current law makes it misdemeanor to commit fraud, this adds those that help someone commit fraud, help them get something they aren’t entitled to, and/or more than they are entitled to.
