Another Try At Welfare Reform In PA

A leader in the state Senate says welfare reform will once again be on the agenda this legislative session in Harrisburg. One of the issues surrounds work requirements for able-bodied Medicaid recipients. Legislation vetoed last year by Governor Tom Wolf will likely be reintroduced this session, according to state Senator David Argall, who chairs the Senate Majority Policy Committee. He says there's no reason for healthy individuals who are collecting benefits not to be seeking employment.
