Winner of the Day: Welfare Reform

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker toured the state yesterday promoting a new welfare reform package that will be included in the state budget: work requirements for adults receiving Foodshare assistance, more vocational training for the state’s incarcerated population and occupational license reform. The legislature will need to take a long look at some of the proposals, but overall the package is moving the state in the right direction, and that makes welfare reform the winner of the day.
