DPA-AFDC-SELF SUFFICIENCY                                                  

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Public Aid Code.  Requires the  Department  of  Public      
   Aid  to  implement a family responsibility program for AFDC recipients      
   to  provide  education,  employability-skills  training,   and   other      
   services designed to make program participants self-sufficient. States

   statewide implementation by January 1,  1998  and  requires  statewide      
   implementation by July 1, 1998. Effective immediately.
