DENVER (AP) – A bill to ban the use of public assistance cards at strip club ATMs got initial approval from lawmakers but not before a light-hearted debate.
House Democrats offered several amendments to the Rep. Dan Pabon’s bill Monday, including naming the legislation “The Dan Pabon Valentine’s Day Strip Club Public Assistance Act of 2011.”
Another amendment said the law should not be in effect at any time at Rep. Mark Waller’s “place of residence.”
The cards, similar to ATM cards, give recipients access to food stamps and other public assistance.
The House approved the bill on second reading, without the amendments, and faces another vote before going to the Senate.
The law already prohibits people from using their public assistance cards at ATMs in casinos, racetracks, and liquor stores.Answer Question

They may use the ATM next door and still spend it at the club, but they likely will not spend as much. It is like going to the Casino with a card when you are there if you only take in XX amount in cash and not your credit card you will not spend near as much. Not that I really think they should be using their state aid on this, but if they have to constantly go and get cash across the street they probably will not drain all the funds in one night.
