Our Future Dilemma

Ever hear of the "Report of the Advisory Council on Public Assistance?"

It's a comparatively unpublicized 137-page paper-bound document available in Washington. It contains 20 recommendations of such magnitude that it could alter the basic structure of welfare administration.

It could also add billions of dollars to welfare costs and it could further entangle the Federal Government in the "welfare state."

As a follow-up to the recently concluded "Our Costly Dilemma" series, the Buffalo Evening News takes a look at the future of welfare and reports that it could grow by billions of dollars in the near future, according to a report by the Advisory Council on Public Assistance.
