WELFARE. INITIATIVE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT. Adds article to constitution providing that every person who is not personally providing full time care for a child under age 6, excepting persons exempted by federal standards, shall be required to participate in a Community Work Experience program as a condition of eligibility for aid under the Aid to Families with Dependent Children program. Requires state agency to establish and operate Community Work Experience programs and to promulgate regulations creating sanctions for persons who fail to participate without good cause. Requires counties to implement program. Reduces present schedule of maximum AFDC aid to be paid. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local governments: Community Work Experience Program. They are unable to estimate the net fiscal effect of this program because the initiative does not specify the administrative details but rather requires the Legislature to enact legislation that specifies the details of the program, and there is lack of sufficient information to determine how the requirement to participate in the program would affect the period of time for which a family would receive assistance under the AFDC program. Aid to Families with Dependent Children Program. The new schedule of maximum grant levels for this program would result in annual identifiable savings of $475 million in state funds and $50 million in county funds beginning in 1985-86. (There also would be $400 million savings in federal funds.)
