LINCOLN PARK, Mich. -- Free lunch is over for a Michigan lottery winner!
24-year-old Amanda Clayton recently won $1 million, but continued to use food stamps.
She said she thought it was okay. She doesn't work and struggles to pay the bills for her new car and two houses.
The state saw her story and immediately cut her off.
Lawmakers are working on a bill that would keep lotto winners from getting welfare.
