Tate Reeves on Welfare & Poverty

 

 


$250 million investment in affordable housing

There is much more to do to ensure more Oregon families have a warm, safe, dry place to call home. My budget continues our $250 million investment in affordable housing, homelessness prevention, and rental assistance. We have also included more than $20 million to help provide a pathway to homeownership for Black, Indigenous, Latino, Latina, Latinx, Asian, Pacific Islander, Native American, and Tribal communities, as well as adding co-op and land trust models to our system.

Overhaul welfare program; eliminate fraud & abuse

HB 1090 restores the 1990s reforms. These are just 5 of the major reforms it accomplishes: Requires able-bodied adults to get off SNAP (food stamps) and get back to work. Removes millionaires and mansion owners from food stamps. Tracks out-of-state spending to stop welfare fraud and abuse. Protects Medicaid and other welfare programs by giving state employees new tools to eliminate fraud. Saves taxpayers millions a year by removing fraudsters and identity thieves.

Only 54% of adult Mississippians are in the labor force. This bill will eliminate loopholes in current welfare policy that serve as a disincentive to work. That is not to say that the majority of welfare recipients are lazy, as some have characterized it. It is simply to require those who are able to work to either get a job or be actively looking for one in order to receive benefits.

Special thanks to Lt. Governor Tate Reeves. He and others put in many hours of work to see this bill pass.
