    NC Welfare: New Law to require criminal background checks

    NC To Require Criminal Background Checks On Those Seeking Welfare CBS Charlotte

    yep... criminal background checks for those seeking welfare assistance.

    Apparently, they want to be sure people are in compliance with Federal law prohibits people who are subject to arrest warrants for violating probation or parole or for a felony charge from receiving public assistance benefits.

    Of course... where is the $$$ to do it?

    It's too bad that having a child knowingly without the means to support it isn't on the list of dis-qualifiers.

    They'll take it out of distantly unrelated budget spending. Perhaps take the money out of drug rehab programs, job training program, family planning, etc.
