House Votes to Limit Welfare Cash Usage

HR 3567, the Welfare Integrity Now for Children and Families Act of 2011, was overwhelmingly passed in the House. The measure prohibits State welfare agencies  from allowing the use of cash assistance debit cards in strip clubs, casinos, and liquor stores.

159 Democrats joined 236 Republicans in support of the bill, while one Republican, Justin Amash (MI-3), joined 26 Democrats in opposition to the measure.
