"M.  The Board of Social Services shall provide a report on caseloads and expenditures since 2000 for TANF and any predecessor program.  The report shall provide information on the composition of TANF cases over that time, including but not limited to duration of this public assistance and provision of services designed to lead to employment.  The report shall provide information on amounts spent on benefit payments and the proportion of TANF funds or block grants provided to benefit payments.  The report shall also document expenditures of TANF funds that are not directed specifically at TANF recipients.  The report shall also make recommendations on how funding can be directed specifically at TANF recipients and at helping prevent others from becoming TANF recipients.  The report shall be provided to the Governor and to the Chairmen of the Senate Finance and House Appropriations Committees by October 1, 2016."

The report shall include historical caseload, expenditures and a variety of other information on the program. The department must submit the report by October 1, 2016 to the General Assembly.)
