Clinton Administration to Conduct Welfare Study

At the behest of Senate Democrats, President Clinton has announced the launch of a new welfare study. The study will analyze how the Republican welfare plan adversely affects millions of children. Senator Patrick Moynihan (D-N.Y.) and eleven other Democrats alleged that the White House had conducted a study which showed that one million more children than originally estimated would fall into poverty if the Republican plan takes effect. In response, the Clinton Administration announced that the Department of Health and Human Services had indeed conducted a study in September. Furthermore, Office of Management and Budget Director Alice M. Rivlin announced that the administration plans to undertake a new analysis of the “impact of this bill on children leaving poverty.”
