Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
Amends the AFDC Article of the Public Aid Code. Requires that in
implementing the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program under
P. L. 104-193, pregnant women and women caring for children under 12
months of age at home be exempt from participation in work activities.
STATE MANDATES FISCAL NOTE
In the opinion of DCCA, HB1809 fails to create a State mandate
under the State Mandates Act.
FISCAL NOTE (Dept. of Public Aid)
One of the goals of welfare reform is to dissolve the separa-
tion of the welfare population from the general population. Not
exempting healthy pregnant women and women with young children
from work activities is a means to this end.
