A. The Secretary of Health and Human Resources shall report to the Governor and the Chairmen of the Senate Finance and House Appropriations Committees, by November 15 of each year, on the progress in implementing welfare reform and in securing private sector jobs for recipients of Aid to Families with Dependent Children.

B. The Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Act of 1996 (PL 104-193, Section 402) provides $20,000,000 for the five states that achieve the most significant reduction in the magnitude of non-marital births while reducing the rate of induced pregnancy terminations below 1995 levels. In the event the Commonwealth receives these federal funds, the total amount shall be distributed to local governments based on their pro rata reduction of non-marital child bearing and participation in the Partners in Prevention Initiative established by the Secretary of Health and Human Resources to encourage and support community-directed strategies that address this critical social issue.
