Community discussion to explain welfare and family services bill scheduled
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - The Norton Healthcare Sports and Learning Center will host a community panel discussion on House Bill 7.
House Bill 7, which is set to take effect on July 14, is set to reduce availability of federal assistance for those in need, including establishing additional restrictions on use of benefits.
The community panel scheduled for June 21 aims to highlight the importance of having social support services and educating the community about the public safety net.
