 Fiscal Note (Dept. of Human Services)
 HB 263 provides that persons shall not be determined ineligible for cash assistance provided under the TANF program based upon a conviction for any drug related felony under state or federal law. This change in eligibility will likely lead to an additional 1,000 additional TANF cases. The increase in caseload will increase TANF costs by $3.2 million.
