Passage of the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconcil. Act in 1996 was intended to drastically transform public assistance in the U.S. With it, a new emphasis was established to move public assistance recipients from welfare to work. But, rather than leading to self-sufficiency, the reform instituted tough requirements and restrictions on eligibility (including time limits, work requirements, and participation rates). The law gave states discretion to structure programs, and impelled them to enforce strict sanctions. This report evaluates the 1996 law against new exec. and legislative proposals for reauth. The proposals not only ignored some of the negative outcomes of the 1996 reform, but potentially compounded the disparate impact of the 1996 law.
