No Welfare for Drug Dealers 

To help ensure public assistance benefits are dedicated to those truly in need, the House endorsed legislation this week to prevent convicted drug dealers from receiving welfare.

House Bill 129 would prohibit individuals convicted of violating the Controlled Substance Act from eligibility for public assistance.
