"B.  By November 1 of each year, the Department of Planning and Budget, in cooperation with the Department of Social Services, shall prepare and submit a forecast of expenditures for cash assistance provided through the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program, mandatory child day care services under TANF, foster care maintenance and adoption subsidy payments, upon which the Governor’s budget recommendations will be based, for the current and subsequent two years to the Chairmen of the House Appropriations and Senate Finance Committees."

(This amendment requires the Department of Planning and Budget and Social Services to submit a forecast of anticipated expenditures for TANF cash assistance payments, mandated child day care services, foster care maintenance and adoption subsidy payments on November 1 of each year similar to the Medicaid forecast produced by the Department of Medical Assistance Services. This information will allow the General Assembly to provide better oversight of these social services programs.)
