Rick Snyder on Welfare & Poverty
No welfare benefits for people with felony warrants
New bills require the state to develop an automated system that will facilitate information sharing. Soon cross-checking the names of people receiving public assistance against a database of outstanding felony warrants in order to make sure only
those who are eligible are able to receive public assistance will be possible.
It is already illegal for anyone with a felony warrant to collect welfare benefits, but the state does not currently have a good system in place.
