January 2017

Federal Update

The new Congress convened on January 3 and began immediately the process to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA). That effort will likely crowd out any other health and human services legislative activity in the near term, given that the committees with ACA jurisdiction are the same ones responsible for overseeing most human services programs, including the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program and IV-E foster care.

Updates in the CWDA January Federal Update include the latest on:

  • Affordable Care Act Repeal
  • Confirmation Hearing for HHS Secretary Designate Price
  • Family First Prevention Services Act (FFPSA)
  • Ways & Means Human Resources Subcommittee Members Announced
