(This amendment adds $125,312 each year from the Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) block grant to fund the fiscal impact of House Bill 992 which provides that a person who is otherwise eligible to receive TANF benefits shall not be denied such benefits solely because he has been convicted of a felony offense of possession of a controlled substance, provided that he is not using illegal drugs, complies with all obligations imposed by the criminal court and the Department of Social Services, and is actively engaged in or has completed substance abuse treatment.)
