LANSING, MI (MPRN)-- Governor Rick Snyder will decide whether to sign a bill tying welfare payments to school attendance.
The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) already cuts off payments to families with kids who miss a lot of school. The state House has sent the governor a bill that would cement that policy in state law.
“This is a great incentive for parents,” said state Rep. Al Pscholka (R-Stevensville), who sponsored House Bill 4041.
“And you have to have parental involvement to have a great education.”
