Kansas Officials: Review Shows No Problems with New Welfare Law

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Kansas officials say a review of the state's new welfare law shows it doesn't conflict with federal rules governing state child care programs. Kansas Department for Children and Families economic and employment services director Sandra Kimmons also said Tuesday that federal officials haven't indicated that there's a problem. The issue arose after a child advocacy group raised concerns that several aspects of the new welfare reform law could conflict with federal rules, jeopardizing more than $40 million a year in federal funds. The law, called the HOPE Act, was approved by the Legislature last session. Shannon Cotsoradis, president and CEO of Kansas Action for Children, maintains there could be a problem with certain state work requirements for parents and subsidy cutoffs for noncompliance.
