However that change will allow some people without bank accounts to still receive checks.</p><p>Critics of the federal government’s move to make payments electronically instead of through paper checks say rural residents could be most impacted by the change.</p> Sat, 16 Feb 2013 01:06:02 +0000 Sara Montoya 25163 at http://kunm.org
