(Carson City, NV)  —  Most Nevada welfare recipients use their debit cards at banks, ATM’s and grocery stores.  A study of transactions from the last six months of 2011 by the “Nevada News Bureau” found most transactions from clients of the state’s Temporary Assistance for Needy Families were legit.  But a few may have been having a good time on the taxpayer’s dime.  The study found just over two-percent of the withdrawals were made outside Nevada.  They included transactions from Hawaii and Southern California.
