A bill, introduced this week:
FIRST REGULAR SESSION
HOUSE BILL NO. 1040
97TH GENERAL ASSEMBLY
INTRODUCED BY REPRESENTATIVE COOKSON.
2250H.01I D. ADAM CRUMBLISS, Chief Clerk
To amend chapter 160, RSMo, by adding thereto one new section relating to school age children of welfare recipients.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the state of Missouri, as follows:
Section A. Chapter 160, RSMo, is amended by adding thereto one new section, to be known as section 160.058, to read as follows:
160.058. School age children of welfare recipients must attend public school, unless physically disabled, at least ninety percent of the time in order to receive benefits.
[emphasis in original]
Does anyone really think it’s a good idea to single out children? Curiously, children of corporate CEOs aren’t required to attend public school at least ninety percent of the time. Then again, for right wingnut republicans there is no such thing as corporate welfare.
