Fiscal Note
Minor savings - General Fund
Fiscal Detail and Notes
Removing requirements for the Department of Health and Human Services to educate recipients of Temporary Assistance for Needy Families on appropriate uses of the benefits and to track the cost of implementing and enforcing the prohibitions in this bill will create some minor savings to the department. Removing the penalties for certain violations that were added by the bill will have no fiscal impact because existing federal penalties are more stringent.
