(This amendment provides funding each year for the provision of cash assistance through the Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) program to individuals who would be eligible for such assistance but for a conviction of a felony offense of possession of a controlled substance in violation of § 18.2-250, Code of Virginia. While federal TANF legislation bars assistance to such persons, the federal law does permit states to opt out of this provision. Funding is contingent upon passage of Senate Bill 642.)
