Governor Kim Reynolds says the state is working to fix issues that cause the state to be hit with a nearly two million dollar fine. That federal fine was for errors in distributing food assistance.
The USDA cited the state for having a higher error rate than the national average, which was first reported by WOI-TV in Des Moines. The state was found to be overpaying benefits much more often than it was underpaying them.
Reynolds says she still doesn’t know why the state had a high error rate.
