Big Changes Coming to Public Assistance Programs

The Missouri House has approved a bill that would bring some big changes to public assistance programs. Representative Casey Guernsey’s says the key provision of HB 343 would create a work program for public assistance recipients and requires recipients age 18 or older to have a high school diploma, or get one within two years of beginning to receive benefits. An amendment added to the bill also sets minimum requirements for the hours recipients must spend working, training for or looking for a job. Another provision would bar the use of electronic benefits cards in some businesses including liquor stores. The legislation has advanced to the state Senate.
