Page 276, after line 37, insert:
“D.  As a condition of this appropriation, effective July 1, 2003, the Department of Social Services shall disregard the value of one motor vehicle per assistance unit in determining eligibility for cash assistance in the TANF program and in the separate state program for able-bodied two-parent families.”

(This amendment appropriates federal TANF funding and adds language to disregard the value of one motor vehicle per family when determining eligibility for cash assistance. Families receiving time-limited cash assistance and required to work would need access to reliable transportation.)
