Heritage reports the Administration for Children and Families, a division of the Department of Health and Human Services, is investigating whether, and how, federal welfare funds have been used at liquor stores, casinos, and strip clubs � all prohibited under federal law.
Under legislation that extended a payroll tax holiday, passed by Congress and signed into law earlier this year, states are directed to prevent recipients of funds under the Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) program from using their benefits at �any liquor store; any casino, gambling casino, or gaming establishment; or any retail establishment which provides adult-oriented entertainment in which performers disrobe or perform in an unclothed state for entertainment.�
HHS will cut off block grants to states that do not adequately comply with the provision. States are required to report their efforts to HHS in 2014, but ACF�s Office of Family Assistance is already looking to issue a regulation that addresses the misuse of TANF funds.
Such misuse was widespread enough to require congressional action and federal enforcement.
