(WPMI) Food stamps see a decline across the whole state.

Food stamps across the state of Alabama are seeing a decline since the work-requirement was reinstated.

The Department of Human Resources says that if you are between the ages of 18-49, you must work at least 20 hours a week to qualify for food stamps.

Because of this requirement, the number of people on assistance is dropping.

According to the Department of Human Resources there was a decline in Mobile County of three percent.

A steady decline over the next three years is expected.
