It was an honor and a pleasure to discuss safety net issues with advocates from Social Action Linking Together (SALT). SALT members were influential in helping me pass key reforms to the TANF program over the past few sessions. We increased the ongoing dollars available to TANF moms and dedicated dollars to job training programs in local communities. I am particularly proud that my legislation to enable foster kids to access scholarship dollars for certificate or trade related training programs passed. More still needs to be done, but I am confident that SALT will continue to make its voice heard.
