Welfare Reform and HB1 on the Pegasus Podcast
HB1 in the 2020 Kentucky Legislative Session is a multi-faceted welfare reform bill. As has been the goal for many years now, legislators are looking for ways to reform Kentucky's many government services to help provide aid in a way that allows people to get to a place where they no longer need it. HB1 looks to provide a pathway to self-suffiency for more Kentuckians - while still making sure we are protecting our most vulnerable. Anne-Tyler Morgan, a Pegasus Senior Fellow, has spent many years working in and out of government on a variety of government benefit programs. She was involved in last years interim task force on public assistance reform, and has played a critical role in the drafting of HB1 this year. So, we decided to chat with about what is in HB1, and how Kentucky could benefit from it.
