Welfare and Grades
Tennessee State Senator Stacy Campfield withdrew his bill that would tie welfare benefits to grades children receiving benefits get in school. The bill would have reduced benefits by thirty percent if a child did not meet requirements. Katy Chambers with Clergy for Justice says it puts unfair pressure on the kids. Chambers says the bill is immoral and unjust, since it only targets those poorest students in the state. Campfield withdrew the bill after being met with protesters outside the Capitol. He also called an 8-year-old girl a political prop when she gave him a petition and tried to tell him what she thought about the issue. (CC)
