PUBLIC AID CD-DOMESTC VIOLENCE                                             

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Illinois Public Aid Code.  Incorporates  the  domestic      
   violence  option of the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF)      
   program in the Social  Security  Act  into  provisions  of  the  Code.      
   Provides  that  all  State  agencies responsible for the operation and      
   implementation of any portion of the TANF program or the child support      
   programs under the TANF Article and the Support Enforcement Article of      
   the Code shall (i) screen and identify applicants  and  recipients  of      
   assistance  for  TANF  who  are  past  or  present victims of domestic      
   violence or at risk of further  domestic  violence,  while  protecting      
   confidentiality;  (ii)  refer  these  individuals  for  counseling and      
   supportive services; and  (iii)  waive,  for  so  long  as  necessary,      
   pursuant  to  a determination of good cause, any  program requirements      
   that would make it more difficult  for  these  individuals  to  escape      
   domestic  violence  or  unfairly  penalize  past or present victims of      
   domestic violence or those at risk of further domestic violence.
