(This amendment provides funding the second 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. Thirty-four states have opted out of this provision and provide TANF to eligible recipients. Funding is contingent upon the passage of Senate Bill 782.)
