Ohio Welfare

A new law restricting the number of years families can remain on welfare has taken effect in Ohio, where some 3,800 families will no longer receive monthly checks from the government. Another 1,900 will go off the rolls next month. Bill Cohen from Ohio Public Radio reports that welfare advocates are up in arms about it.
