Bridge Card system restored across Michigan

Posted: Updated:

The company that runs the state's system for the Bridge Card, WIC, and SNAP programs says the problem that knocked it offline has now been fixed.

Customers were not able to use their cards for several hours today.

Xerox Corp. services the network, which failed completely during a routine check this morning.

The outage affected 17 states in all.

It was not related to the federal government shutdown.
