The election of Bill Clinton has brought welfare reform back to the forefront of the national agenda. President Clinton has listed welfare reform as one of his highest priorities. While concerned with the welfare system in general, he has committed himself to a specific type of reform-placing a maximum limit on the amount of time a family can receive welfare and requiring some type of work program for those still in need after the time limit.
