Congressman Flake Votes to Prevent Obama Administration From Weakening Welfare Program Work Requirements

Press Release

Location: Washington, DC

Republican Congressman Jeff Flake, who represents Arizona's Sixth District, today voted in favor of H.J. Res. 118, which will prevent the Obama Administration from weakening work requirements within the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program that were established by the 1996 welfare reform law. The Resolution responds to recent and persistent concerns with the Administration's apparent directive to lessen work requirements as part of TANF.

"The Obama Administration's efforts to weaken welfare work requirements have taxpayers justifiably concerned," said Flake. "This is commonsense legislation that makes certain that the landmark 1996 welfare reform law's work requirements remain intact."
