CO-SPONSORSHIP of the Welfare Reform Act of 2011

In March, Representative Jim Jordan (R-OH) introduced the Welfare Reform Act of 2011 (H.R.1167).  The Welfare Reform Act would build on the successful 1996 reforms by encouraging independence and self-sufficiency, disclosing the full cost of America’s welfare system and capping the overall costs.

Heritage Action supports H.R.1167 and will include CO-SPONSORSHIP of this legislation in our scorecard.
