Congressman Glenn Grothman was hoping the House would take up welfare reform this year, but that didn’t happen. Despite that, it is still a priority for Grothman. He says he has heard from representatives of both Donald Trump and Paul Ryan that they intend to take it up next year. Grothman is hoping that means welfare reform will be taken up in the next three to four months. Negotiations didn’t work out with the Senate this year, and Grothman says it will be more difficult to push the issue through now that Roy Moore lost his Senate race in Alabama. He fears some won’t take the stance they should on welfare reform as they get closer to another election.
