MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The state Assembly plans to pass a welfare overhaul package championed by Gov. Scott Walker as part of his re-election year agenda that would give Wisconsin one of the toughest work requirements for food stamp recipients in the country.
The bills are up for a vote Thursday.
Walker is touting them as a way to give people on food stamps the worker training and experience they need to get a job that will allow them to leave public assistance.
