Time to End the CalWORKs Auto Resource Rule
07/13/2011

Western Center publishes a new paper explaining why Assembly Bill 1182, a bill Authored by Assemblyman Hernández and sponsored by the New America Foundation, which ends the CalWORKs Auto Resource Rule is good for families moving from welfare to work and for the state's bottom line.

Western Center publishes a new paper explaining why Assembly Bill 1182, a bill Authored by Assemblyman Hernández and sponsored by the New America Foundation, which ends the CalWORKs Auto Resource Rule is good for families moving from welfare to work and for the state's bottom line.
