MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - The Wisconsin Assembly approves a bill penalizing people who traffic in food stamp benefits.

The measure backed by Republicans would make it against the law to buy, sell or transfer food stamp benefits for cash or trade them for alcohol or cigarettes.

Backers say this new law will give district attorneys the tools they need to prosecute food stamp traffickers.

The legislation now goes to the Wisconsin Senate for consideration.
