With more than 230,000 Idaho residents receiving food stamps the first day of the month and most of them using them within a day or two, Idaho grocers are asking the state to stagger the days food stamps are issued to relieve the burden on grocery lines.

A bill to do that passed the Idaho House in 2012, but did not receive a hearing in the Senate says a story in the Idaho Statesman.
