Veto, Section 3 authors the Director of these programs a blank check. That is seriously a dangerous item.

Bill passes, but was shared 2 times. President wvamerican will choose whether or not to sign the bill.

Any way to require drug testing?

I'll admit that I'm too lazy to read other comments. But I strongly feel that assistance should be tied to no abuse of drugs.

You could always propose an amendment.

I support this, but I'd like to see something along the lines of WPA to strengthen our infrastructure.

How will these programs affect the minor children of the recipients? Child care is a major concern and costly for those on a limited budget.

Do we know how much it would cost to implement and overview this plan? We also could have exemptions, if you have college degree and you got laid off, you don't necessarily need job training. Are we paying for the training? At what cost?

And is this all federally funded or are we expecting some sort of matching contribution from the states?

Nay for now.
It would be a yea if Section 3 were eliminated as it is essentially a blank check.
