TULSA, Oklahoma -- Oklahoma is facing a crisis. It's one that could soon cost the government $1-billion.

That's how much it could cost to pay for all the Oklahomans on food stamps this year. The number of people in the program has recently skyrocketed, and it looks like the numbers will continue to rise.

"The question is: will the pot run out. Will the well run dry? And, of course, yes," said Gerald Davis, Oklahoma Department of Human Services.

News on 6 Oklahoma Impact Team goes beyond the statistics to figure out what gives.. and at what cost.

That's Monday night on the News on Six at Ten.
