HB 2505 requires an electronic benefit (EBT) card issued to or on behalf of a person receiving public assistance to contain a photo identification of the person authorized to use the card.

The bill requires the Department of Social and Health Services to consider using the photographic databases of the Department of Licensing as a cost-saving measure, work with the Department of Licensing to access and cross-share facial recognition data and resources for the purposes of identifying potential fraud, and report any case where there is reason to believe that fraud has been committed to the attorney general, prosecutor's office, or appropriate law enforcement entity.
