Senator Max Wise will serve as a member of the Public Assistance 
Reform Task Force, following appointments that were announced last 
week by the Senate Majority Caucus.
    The purpose of the group will be to study the potential 
effectiveness of a work-based, drug-free model for public assistance 
beneficiaries, to replace the current system of administering 
Medicare and food stamp benefits.
    The task force will submit its findings to the General Assembly no 
later than November 29, 2019.
    "It is essential that we take a hard look at the effectiveness of 
our assistance programs in the Commonwealth and determine whether 
they are properly aiding individuals as they attempt to re-enter the 
workforce." said Wise. "I look forward to participating in the 
evaluation efforts of this group, and hopefully we can make the 
necessary changes that allow Kentuckians to once again be productive 
members of their community."
    The first meeting of the task force will take place on Monday, July 8, at 3 p.m. in Frankfort.
