USDA/FNS RIN: 0584-AD48 Publication ID: Fall 2009 
Title: FSP: Regulation Restructuring To Reflect the End of Coupon Issuance Systems 
Abstract: The changes to the Food Stamp Programís regulations are being put forth to account for the replacement of the paper coupon issuance system with the Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) system as the nationwide method of distributing benefits to program recipients. These changes will remove coupon issuance regulations that are no longer applicable, revise regulatory language to more appropriately connote the new EBT issuance system (such as eliminating the use of the term "coupon," and replacing it with either "benefits" or "EBT card"), and reorganize sections to develop a more cohesive set of issuance and retailer regulations. None of the changes will have any policy impacts. The regulatory revisions, however, are necessary to avoid confusion by ensuring that the issuance and redemption requirements are clear and comprehensible. The section that will be updated and reorganized by the rule is 7 CFR part 274. (04-004)
