    Wow, they are finally getting around to implementing compliance with the Welfare Reform Act that create TANF. That legislation required benefits to extend no more than two years consecutive or five years lifetime.

    Welcome to 1997!

    <that's been the federal law for almost 15 years. States that wish to allow longer periods or grant more waivers than allowed must fund it themselves>

    It's a step in the right direction, but I would have gone much further and denied welfare benefits to anyone who has children out of wedlock. That's the cause of about 70% of people being on the welfare roles in the first place.
