Describes the welfare lawÂ’s current limits on when education and training count toward meeting federal work participation rates and how Senator WellstoneÂ’s pending amendment to the law would change these limits. The analysis includes a state-by-state chart of how in Fiscal 2000 current law could decrease the room available to serve adults in education and training by including teen parents in school in the overall cap on countable education and training activities.
