St. Joseph, MO (2009-12-16) St. Joseph's Representative is helping to investigate over-reporting of the number of food stamp recipients living in the state.
No one knows for sure what kind of sanctions Missouri could face.
It's received an extra 14 million dollars, based on inaccurate data that dates back to 2002.
St. Joseph Representative Rob Schaaf sits on the State House committee that oversees budgeting for Social Services and says it could create a problem.
The State Department of Social Services blames a computer programming error for the inflated count.
A spokesman for the agency says the error did not result in anyone that was ineligible receiving benefits.
