Patrick signed the provision into law Friday, after initially amending the measure to ban purchases at certain locations, rather than on certain items. The Legislature rejected the governor’s amendment.

The proposal bans cash assistance purchases at places like nail salons, jewelry stores, liquor stores and casinos, as well as for things like tattoos, pornography and guns.
