A separate amendment to Item 337 (Financial Assistance for Self-Sufficiency Programs and Services) reduces TANF cash payments to individuals who do not comply with the bill requirements. Another amendment to Item 338 (Financial Assistance for Local Social Services Staff) includes funding for the administrative costs of drug screening and testing of TANF recipients. This amendment is contingent upon the final passage of SB 721.)
