Republicans in Harrisburg are hoping to make welfare reform a high priority.
A group of GOP state lawmakers unveiled a package of about 20 bills. Supporters say that package will contain costs and bring real reform to Pennsylvania's welfare system. Among the lawmakers on hand today was Representative Brad Roae, who says the changes will help people go from welfare to self-sufficiency. "Rather than instantly stopping some of the benefits, the second somebody gets a job, it would be easier for people to transition from welfare to work. The package would also make sure there is less fraud, less abuse and more responsibility."
Among the proposed changes, a 48-month lifetime limit on temporary assistance for needy families.
